August Updates and Events

August Updates and Events

The end of July marks our Mid-Season mark for 2017! We have 4 more months of regular Market season before the Winter break.

In addition to our regular Saturday Markets, here are the special Markets and Events we have planned for August!


August 12: Denton Community Market celebrates National Farmers Market Week!

National #FarmersMarketWeek is August 6 – 12, 2017! We want to celebrate with you at the Denton Community Market on Saturday, August 12th!

The Denton Community Market will be offering complimentary juice and fruit drink samples from our local drink vendors. We will also be giving away free Denton Community Market stickers! – While Supplies Lasts!

Farmers Markets like the Denton Community Market help to:

  • /  Preserve America’s rural livelihoods and farmland. Farmers markets provide one of the only low-barrier entry points for beginning farmers, allowing them to start small, test the market, and grow their businesses.
  • /  Stimulate local economies. Growers selling locally create 13 full time farm operator jobs per $1 million in revenue earned. Those that do not sell locally create 3.
  • /  Increase access to fresh, nutritious food. Several studies have found lower prices for conventional and organic produce at farmers markets than at supermarkets. Due to this and other factors, 52% more SNAP households shop at farmers markets and from direct marketing farmers today than in 2011.
  • /  Support healthy communities. Farmers market vendors educate their shoppers. Four out of five farmers selling at markets discuss farming practices with their customers, and three in five discuss nutrition and how to prepare food.
  • /  Promote sustainability. Three out of every four farmers selling at farmers markets say they use practices consistent with organic standards.
