120 West Main Street, Grand Prairie, Texas 75050, United States
Grand Prairie Farmers Market at Market Square, 120 W. Main St., in downtown Grand Prairie, Texas, is open Saturdays from early April through mid-December and features locally grown fruits and vegetables, plants, tamales, baked goods, salsas, dips, relishes, eggs, honey, chips, soaps, candles and more.
Market Square is a one-half-acre park with a building that features bays for up to six vehicles to sell produce and other goods. The architecture is reminiscent of a red barn with a corrugated tin roof, evoking ties with the city’s history. A pavilion extends the ability to include more vendors for the farmers’ market just to the west of the barn. Shade structures, landscaping, benches, and a paved area provide space for outdoor entertainment. A “pot-belly” water tower sits on the corner near the same location a similar tower stood in the early 1900s and acts as a directional beacon for those looking for Market Square.
Market Square was designed by Killis Almond and built by Phillips/May. A city facility, the Grand Prairie Sports Facilities Development Corporation contributed $450,000 toward the cost of the $1.2 million park. Construction began in March 2009 and the grand opening was held Oct. 24, 2009.
Market Square is home to the Farmers Market, open on Saturdays 8 a.m.-1 p.m., spring through December.
