As if you needed another reason to live in Dripping Springs, but here’s one. The Dripping Springs Farmers Market is No. 1 in Texas again! The American Farmland Trust Farmers Market Challenge lists Dripping Springs Farmers Market as one of the top ones in Texas for the third time in four years. DSFM is also No. 1 for the entire Southwest and No. 15 in the nation.
To make the list, a farmers market needs to succeed in the following five categories:
- Focus on farmers and educate the community
- Provide healthy food for all
- Be a champion for the environment
- Be a pillar of the community
- Be loved by the people
The market is located at Veterans Memorial Park on Veterans Memorial Park 160 E Mercer St. in The Triangle, which is off 290 & RR12. It’s the place for meat, eggs, prepared foods, homemade pies, and lots more.
