ROCKWALL, TX (May 7, 2022) Farmers Market opened with music and fanfare this morning in Downtown Rockwall as families came out bright and early to visit over 30 vendor booths, catch up with neighbors, and experience a vibrant Summer Kickoff event.
Our Blue Ribbon News team was in the historic downtown square to capture the opening ceremonies and share photos of fresh produce, farm eggs, artisan breads, local honey, jams, grass-fed meats, plants, and more.
Mayor Kevin Fowler and Rockwall County Judge David Sweet were among those who addressed the crowd, thanking the Farmers Market committee for going over the top in their efforts.
“The Rockwall Farmers Market is truly part of the fabric of the City of Rockwall and Rockwall County. Congratulations to Claudette Hatfield and every single volunteer who work so hard to make it such a success,” Sweet said. “Thank you to the Rockwall County County and City of Rockwall staff for your partnership and hard work getting Downtown Rockwall and the Historic Courthouse ready to go each week.”
Farmers Market continues 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays through September 24.
The San Jacinto Plaza Music Series also kicks off today, with live music offerings in the plaza on Friday and Saturday evenings, 7 to 9:30 p.m., through October. Cafe style tables and chairs as well as seat walls fill the space. Guests are welcome to bring chairs, food, and beverages, or visit one of the downtown restaurants. Find the music lineup here
