After all, that’s where you’ll meet the growers, makers and artisans, and shop alongside some of North Texas’ most notable chefs as they source the best produce for their own dishes. Luckily, Fort Worth is flush with worthy farmers markets.

Garnet-hued vine-ripened tomatoes, golden yellow squash, pints of fresh-picked blueberries and rows of fuzzy green okra await. No one should do weekly meal prep before perusing their favorite farmers market. If you’re in Fort Worth, there’s likely to be one near your neighborhood.
