Saturday, June 15, is Pop-Up-Horticulture featuring Ellis County Master Gardener, Mattie Thompson, with her “Gardening in Small Spaces” program.
Gain skills on container gardening in Texas, what works on a balcony or patio, or what potted plants work around the pool. Grow a garden in a variety of containers, from buckets, pots and grow-bags. Visitors are invited to bring their own pot and potting mix while learning to grow flowers, vegetables and herbs successfully.
There will be plants available to purchase or bring your own. Look for the white pop-up tent next to the Ellis County Master Gardener booth.
Grill Festival returns to the Waxahachie Downtown Farmers Market on Saturday, June 22. This is everyone’s favorite market day!
The Ellis County Master Gardeners will fire up the grills while gathering vegetables, fruits, meat, produce and seasonings from the market sellers. If the market vendors grow it, the ECMG volunteers will grill it. There are always some unusual sample offerings.
The grilling goes on all morning, with free samples handed out until the food runs out. Come join the festivities.
Saturday, June 29, the Waxahachie Downtown Farmers Market will be overflowing with fresh summer produce. Sweet Texas corn, vine ripe local tomatoes and juicy peaches, along with an abundance of local produce, local meats, pickles, salsas and seasonings, are ready for your Fourth of July holiday picnic, grilling and outdoor enjoyment.
Come shop with us. Bring your reusable market bag or purchase one from your favorite seller. We also have a new supply of bright orange bags promoting the Waxahachie Downtown Farmers Market.
