Go the the Farmers Market in Dallas. Also one of the latest issues of DMagazine had a list of places out and around Dallas to go pick or buy fresh fruit.

Last week I was giving away home grown tomatoes like no one else.......... it was a bumper crop. I also heard the peaches are great this year. I've go to go get some fresh Texas peaches - they did not have any at SuperTarget yesterday so I guess off to the Farmers Market. Or better yet..... we can just make a trip to Fredricksberg for the weekend

If you have a backyard, you can always plant veggies, given the warm climate in Dallas.

momof2dfw, where were you when I was looking for fresh tomatoes? We live in Plano, we sometimes go to the Farmers Market there. It's fine, but in NY they have better markets. Surprising, no?
I bought fresh peaches at Wal-Mart, but that was last week. Good price too!

Omg this was just the conversation today over at a friends house today about produce. I talked to a lady who moved here from Nevada about a year ago and she told me she can't find enough fresh veggies or any good tomatoes. I too have noticed today at the store how it was looking pretty sparenly lately when in the past it has been very abundant. It could be the rain?? The Farmers Market downtown, I have not been to in ages but was told today that they aren't really showcasing vegetables from growers here and most of it is coming from Mexico. Usually the produce is really good and I use to find vegetable and fruit stands around. Haven't since I moved back.

I always loved going to Cox's Farm on main in Duncanville, I though have not been there since I moved back. They have a great variety of fresh produce that is grown locally. On my side of town, Mckinney, Market Street has the best variety.

Thanks Lakewooder, I haven't seen that site before Much appreciated!

Mapquest tells me it's 14 miles from my new apartment. Is it worth the drive?

Thanks.

the one thing that irks me about dallas is that they dont have HEB's. sure there are central markets/whole foods but outside of those organic/healthy grocery stores, there really isnt a 'go to' supermarket. tom thumb is horribly overpriced, i see a krogers or albertsons once in a blue moon. i guess superwalmarts/targets will do...

I just called Cox's Farm on main in Duncanville( they don't have a web site) and I was told they have an abundance of vegetables and fruits that are from around Texas. They said their vine rippen and green ( for fried green tomatos) are from East Texas and their peaches are from Parker County. I was told too they have a good onion selection with vidella onions as well as red and white.
It is set up like at food market and has a variety of packaged whole foods as well as vitamins & bulk pasta.

I wish I could find something like that this way and probablly will go visit them this weekend when I go that way.
I do know many from Dallas do go that way over there.

There USED to be a GREAT fresh vegetable and fruit stand of home grown stuff on the corner of 121 and Preston WAY BACK WHEN! Thanks to growth it is gone.

There are a few in Garland one is Cotton's on Broadway (aka Belt Line) between Centerville and Oates. There is another place on Centerville just north of Northwest Hwy around the Duck Creek intersection.

Dallas needs to get Wegmans Food Market. I shopped at one in Fairfax, Virgina area. I just loved that store. We need them here.
