Scenes from the First White Rock Local Market
When the sun first shone on Lakeside Baptist Church this past Saturday it was 33 degrees outside. And even though it warmed up a touch by the time White Rock Local Market opened at 8 a.m., it was hardly perfect outdoor shopping weather.
While some vendors brought fresh, locally grown produce, it was clear spring hasn't quite blossomed.
Sarah Perry, a spokesperson for the market confirmed as much, when I asked her what she thought of the attendance at the season's first market. She thought it was about average. Things looked packed to me.
Some 60 vendors showed up, selling everything from bee pollen to hot dogs to used bicycles. There were some vegetables too, but the small offering echoed the climate. Spring has not yet sprung. It's getting close, though.
By 10 a.m. the market was filled with shoppers.
Didn't make it this weekend? Next weekend's market is at the Green Spot. Check out just a handful of the things you missed, for now.
I don't think I've ever visited a farmers market around Dallas where the Texas Honey Bee Guild didn't show up at. They sell local honey, beeswax and pollen, all delivered with an enthusiastic dose of honey bee puns.
