Area residents can look forward to another season of fresh produce and baked goods at the Parkland Farmers’ Markets. The City of Parkland Farmers Market will return on Sunday, November 7th from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm at the Parkland Equestrian Center. The dog-friendly outdoor market is a popular hit among residents and will be open every other Sunday through April.
The market has once again expanded its produce offerings and will feature over 60 vendors selling fresh baked goods, organic breads, seafood, cheeses, sauces, spreads, sweet treats, and much more.
The Parkland Farmers’ Market began in 2006. In addition to the regular Farmers Market, there will be craft fairs on December 4, December 18, and February 19. Visitors will be able to purchase items such as fresh and organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, beautiful flowers, breads, pastries, and other baked goods. They also feature a variety of gourmet foods such as jam, honey, dips, sauces, fresh pasta, cheese, and pickles. The market is dog friendly so don’t forget to visit the pet vendors! During the November and December Farmer’s Markets, they will feature vendors selling holiday related items.
“The mission of the Parkland Farmers’ Market is to contribute to making our City a healthy community. To do this, we provide a community gathering that offers a wide assortment of conventional and organic fruits as well as an abundance of gourmet food items. The market offers spices, coffees, teas, sauces, and dog treats. Much of which is made and can be enjoyed on site. We also feature specialty market days such as craft fairs, health and wellness fairs, and pet day,” said Todd DeAngelis, Chief Communications Officer for the City of Parkland.
This continued growth reflects the desire for the community to engage in local food producers to purchase fresh produce and food products directly from our local vendors. It also allows an opportunity to bring our community together, interact, meet neighbors, and have fun in the great outdoors of South Florida,” added DeAngelis.
