Dallas Farmers Market History
Once a humble horse-and-wagon wholesale business, the Dallas Farmers Market came about in the late 19th century as farmers began to sell their produce in locations around the city from their wagons. The intersection of South Pearl Expressway and Cadiz Street became the hub of a thriving wholesale market. Vendors began selling produce, chickens, eggs, and livestock. As the city grew, the Dallas Farmers Market was expanded. The first Shed was built in 1939. By 1941, the site was officially sanctioned as a municipally owned and operated market.
