A new farmers market has sprouted up in the sizzling hot town of Euless. The market will set up on Saturdays at Glade Parks in Euless beginning July 25, and will be an "open air" style, perfect for social distancing during these coronavirus times.
The Farmers Market on the Plaza at Glade Parks will feature essential groceries, locally grown produce, and artisan culinary creations, in what a release calls a European-style market setting in the Plaza at Glade Parks.
The market is an initiative between the City of Euless, Glade Parks, and Four Seasons, and has been in the works for months, a spokesperson says.
"We had planned to do this in the spring pre-pandemic, and have been working on it since 2019," the spokesperson says.
Four Seasons Market is the "European-style" market concept organized by Vincent Hirth, a native of France who has worked with suburban cities such as Colleyville, Sachse, Richardson, and Garland to launch markets.
His definition of a European-style market incorporates more than veggies and fruit: grass-fed beef, pasta, olive oil, pastries, chips and salsa, smoked meat, tamales, soaps, lotions, hair accessories, garden decor, jewelry, and fine arts.
At the new Euless market, vendors already signed on include Misty Moon Farms of Argyle, DBar Farms of Ponder, and Cedar Ridge Egg Farms.
Glade Parks is the mixed-use center on the west side of SH 121 between Cheek Sparger and Glade roads that has welcomed shops such as Old Navy and Michael's, and restaurants such as Lazy Dog.
There's free parking on lots surrounding Glade Parks Town Plaza and across Glade Parks.
The market will be set up at 1310 Chisholm Trail, next to Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill and MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company, from 9 am-1 pm, and is currently scheduled to run at least into mid-August.
