Farmers markets are a great idea all around. Besides providing a lovely weekend activity for you and the family (outside!), it’s an avenue for clean eating and supporting local growers and makers. We love it.

The following list of farmers markets in Collin County is arranged alphabetically by city. Dates and hours apply from spring to fall. Most markets pause or scale back during winter, so be sure to check the details during colder months.

Operated by Four Seasons Markets, this one has prepared foods, sweet treats, farm-fresh produce and meats, and more. 10am-2pm, SUNDAYS.
