Featured Vendors of the Denton Community Market receive increased vendor information and social media shared so the Denton community can learn about their friends and neighbors selling locally produced and handmade items at the Market. Supporting local, shopping from your neighbors, and getting to know your farmers are important to the Denton Community Market.

Square Roots Community Art Show - June 27th!
For the third year in a row, Denton Community Market is hosting a Community Art Show! This time we are getting back to our roots!
Come out and enjoy a one-of-a-kind art experience hosted by and benefiting the Denton Community Market. All artwork will be for sale on a "grab & go" basis. (Meaning all the artwork will be for sale and able to take home that night!) Come early to pick out your favorite. Discover local artists and bring home some new wall candy. (Makes a great gift, too!) All art sales go 100% to support the growth of DCM.
Speaking of roots, Armadillo Ale Works, (who have a deep-rooted history helping out the Denton Community Market over the years!) are finally opening up their own brick-and-mortar. We couldn't be more proud of them and we are so thankful they are letting us utilize their beautiful new space on Bell Avenue for this art exhibition event.
Music will be provided by Kind Beats. Enjoy some fresh music, a cold Armadillo Ale Works beer, and unique local artwork. All while supporting the great community of Denton.
Custom art structures built by PINT Services. Check them out for custom vinyl sticker, screen-printing, or laser-engraving work!

In addition to the Go Texan State Certification, we are pleased to announce our own Denton Community Market Certified Farmer program starting this year in 2018. Each farmer will have the new medallion posted at their booth that represents the following:
- The agricultural products are local and were produced within 100 miles of Denton.
- The farmer produces everything sold at the booth each Saturday. No resale is allowed.
- The DCM staff visited the farm and saw evidence of sustainable farming practices, including chemical-free and and/or natural methods as well as humane treatment of farm animals.
- In summary, visitors are getting farm products directly from the farmer. You are directly supporting small, local farms with your purchases.
