The Railcar Farmers Market of Van Alstyne gained official recognition from the Texas Department of Agriculture as a Certified Farmers Market in April 2019. Since its opening in April 2018, it has become a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. In July 2019, the market relocated to a more favorable spot at Main and Cooper St, providing a delightful setting with surrounding trees that offer shade and a cooler environment for vendors and shoppers during the weekly Tuesday market days. Moreover, don't miss the Music in the Park event, held nearby every third Tuesday of the month.
Despite its modest size, this market boasts a wide array of fresh greens, fruits, and vegetables, ensuring a bountiful selection for shoppers. Additionally, you can find delectable baked goods, flavorful jams, homemade soaps, and more, adding to the market's diverse offerings.
