Every week at the Market, there is a unique theme designed to highlight vendor products, in-season produce, children’s activities or interesting garden subjects. Following are the upcoming themes for June:
June 1 TASTE OF MARKET:
Market chefs Cheryl and Arlene will be featuring Texas grown peaches in their samplings. The peach crop is a little late this year, slowed down by the extra rain but that also means the peaches should be extra tasty and juicy. Look for early varieties at the beginning of the month with the larger, freestone arriving mid-month. Local peaches add flavor to summer dishes from salsas, chutney and cobblers or sliced fresh over ice cream. Stop by the tasting room in the front of the market to sample a variety of peachy dishes. Be sure to pick up some recipes and tips on preserving peaches for later use.
June 8 KIDS CRAFT DAY:
Ellis County Master Gardeners will be helping the kids paint pots while they learn about recycling small tin cans and other materials to use in making mini gardens. Kids Craft is in the room at the front of the market. Be sure to bring your kids and grandkids for this fun activity.
June 15 POP-UP HORTICULTURE:
Ellis County Master Gardener, Mattie Thompson, with her “Gardening in Small Spaces” program. Gain skills on container gardening in Texas, what works on a balcony or patio or what potted plants work around the pool. Grow a garden in a variety of containers from buckets, pots and grow-bags. Visitors are invited to bring their own pot and potting mix while learning to grow flowers, vegetables and herbs successfully. There will be plants available to purchase or bring your own. Look for the white pop-up tent next to the ECMG booth.
June 22 GRILL FEST:
This is everyone’s favorite market day! The Ellis County Master Gardeners will fire up the grills while gathering vegetables, fruits, meat, produce and seasonings from the market sellers. If the market vendors grow it, the ECMG volunteers will grill it! There are always some unusual sample offerings. The grilling goes on all morning. Free samples are handed out until the food runs out. Come join the festivities.
Waxahachie Downtown Farmers Market will be overflowing with fresh summer produce. Sweet Texas corn, vine ripe local tomatoes, juicy peaches along with an abundance of local produce, local meats, pickles, salsas and seasonings are ready for your Fourth of July holiday picnic, grilling and outdoor enjoyment. Come shop with us. We have a new supply of bright orange bags promoting the Waxahachie Downtown Farmers Market.
