With the support of the City of Coppell, the Coppell Farmers Market was established in 2003 by citizens who had a vision for a farmers market in Old Town Coppell.
Under the umbrella of the Coppell Community Garden, a 501(c)3 organization, the market has over 35 vendors.
Over a thousand customers come to the Coppell FM on any given Saturday to find local, healthy food, as well as develop a relationship with those providing their food.
Additionally, the customers meet up with friends and neighbors, hence becoming a part of the local food movement.
Run by a steering committee of citizen volunteers, a paid market manager, a city liaison, and vendor input, the CFM Committee meets monthly at the Coppell Service Center.
With subcommittees, like vendor approval, site visit, marketing, and special events, meeting separately as needed.
The 501(c)3 non-profit organization that oversees the market is the Coppell Community Garden.
Additional support comes through the City of Coppell, Keep Coppell Beautiful, plus the many dedicated volunteers on the Coppell Farmers Market Committee and donors like you.
To form a relationship with local growers/producers in order to provide fresh, seasonal produce and agricultural products for our community while fostering a sense of place in Old Town Coppell.
