Things are bustling at the Dallas Farmers Market.

Dallas-Farmers-Market_202439The first thing one notices when pulling into the parking lot is a spacious new restaurant Mudhen Meat and Greens, featuring an extensive menu with delicious options “for folks who try to follow a healthier lifestyle” according to owner Shannon Wynne.  According to their menu, Mudhen features foods “generally lower in carbohydrates (sugars), plus a larger selection of clean meats and greens, organic GMO-free whenever possible.”  In case you’re wondering, mud hens are actually migratory birds who live by the water but walk on land and are often mistaken for ducks.  Thankfully, neither of those species is on the lunch or dinner menu from Executive Chef Suki Otsuki.  You’ll find a range of delicious dishes from which to choose.

Across the parking lot from Mudhen, and inside The Market, formerly called Shed 2, You’ll find Stocks and Bondy from Chef Joanne Bondy.  She features tasty artisan broths and stocks, along with pulled meats, seasonal meals, family dinners, and an array of hand-selected wines.  All items are available grab and go, or pull up a communal table.

Joanne has an active calendar of special events on the way, including a special wine tasting curated by in-house sommelier Hayley Hamilton Cogill to celebrate France on February 20th.  The tasting features three selection from Stocks and Bondy’s wine list, paired with seasonal culinary tastes from Joanne, and her Farmers Market neighbor Scardello Artisan Cheese.  Limited tickets are available through Event Brite.  The cost is $40 advance, and $50 day of the event or at the door.

Scardello is so close, literally just a few steps away from Stocks and Bondy, that you can stop by after the wine and food tasting and pick up more great cheese selections to take home.  Cheesemonger Rich Rogers tells us he is specializing mostly in Texas cheeses in this new location.

And, Rex’s Seafood Market now has its third location in The Market.

If you haven’t been to Farmers Market lately, it’s a whole new world, and there’s more culinary excitement on the way!

And coming up at the Market, chef cooking classes featuring Hugh Stewart from Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill on February 13th, and Abraham Salum from Salum and Komali on February 20th.   Get details at aiwf.org—click on Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter.
