Our Mission
Good Local Markets strengthens the local food economy and creates awareness of the social, environmental and health benefits of growing and eating local food. With new and continuing programs, Good Local Markets promotes the health of our communities, the health of local businesses and the health of our local food system.

Through all of our programs, GLM works to advance prosperity, health, and community.

It’s the holiday season at Good Local Markets, and our farmers and artisans are at the top of their game with quality arts and crafts,  fresh, local fruits and vegetables, meats and cheese, and specialty foods that use products from farms in N. Central Texas. Our schedule is packed:

  • Lakeside Market takes a break on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but will return for our last two markets of 2016  on December 3 and 10,  at 9150 Garland Rd. Our Vickery Meadow Market continues as a farm stand at the Northwest Community Center, Tuesdays at 12pm, 5750 Vineland Dr, Dallas 75231.
  • Lone Star is accepted at all markets.

  • You’ve heard about Brooklyn Flea and Dallas Flea; now meet Good Local Flea! This is an INDOOR arts and crafts market at Half Price Books in the community room at the back of the store. Our final Flea of 2016 is Saturday, December 17th from 3:00pm – 9:00pm.  At Good Local Flea, you will find soaps and jewelry, scarves and dresses, handmade stationary, ceramics, wood crafts and more!

  • Don’t miss is our 8th Annual Holiday Market – shop for the nicest gifts around from our artisan food vendors, farmers and artists! Lakeside Market, December 10 2016.

  • White Rock Hills Library visits the Lakeside Market the 1st and 3rd Saturdays through the fall with Story-time and Library Card sign-ups.

At all of our markets, we present the best local growers and makers to our neighbors, with community events throughout the year. We consider each vendor, and visit each farm to ensure that our customers have the highest quality products. We encourage our farmers to educate their customers on the meaning of Organic, Chemical Free, Sustainable, and “beyond sustainable” growing practices. Look for more information about how to get the most out of the market in the coming weeks. Read about becoming a vendor HERE. Learn about using Lone Star benefits at the market HERE

Only local. All good.

Good Local Markets began in 2009 with the idea that a neighborhood farmers market would improve our health and quality of life here in East Dallas. Why have to drive across town to a farmers market? Why not have one right here?

Our two markets –  Lakeside and Vickery Meadow —  serve thousands of residents looking for healthy and locally sourced foods. Good Local Markets also presents some of our region’s top makers of clothes, jewelry, furniture, fine art, toys and more, hand made by North Texans. Good Local Markets  connects local farmers, food producers and craftsmen directly to our community.
