Garland’s farmers market returns with new name, free pumpkins and kids’ activities this Saturday

Garland’s farmers market is re-launching on Saturday, Oct. 10, after a hiatus because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Formerly known as the “The Urban Flea,” the market has changed its name to the “The Urban Market” ahead of Saturday’s reopening.

The pop-up market usually takes place on the second Saturday of each month.

With more than 55 vendors, the Urban Market will be held in downtown Garland and adhere to social distancing precautions.

The market starts at 9 a.m. and lasts until 4:30 p.m.

In addition to fresh produce stands, baked goods, and a birdhouse painting activity for children, the first 150 people Saturday will receive a free pumpkin.

Some vendors will also offer treats, such as caramel apples and kettle corn, as well as honey, jam and other items.

The market has partnered with several local restaurants, such as Intrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery, around the area of the downtown square.

The monthly market was first canceled for the month of July as the COVID-19 crisis resulted in restrictions on public gatherings.

How about that kisser on Dana Shasken, who owns Mockingbird Food Co. She's one of many vendors finding ways to lighten the mood during COVID times at Cowtown Farmers Market in Fort Worth.
