Dallas Farmers Market (Lunch)

Hidden among the skyscrapers and the hustle of the city is a place where farmers become friends. In the middle of everything but away from it all, the Dallas Farmers Market, once a humble horse-and-wagon wholesale business, the market has grown with the city and turned into a hub for farm-fresh vegetables, dairy, and more.

During this stop, participants can partake in a self-guided tour to explore a mixture of local specialty foods and artisanal food vendors, and shop locally grown produce. Dubbed as one of the “Best Lunch Spots in Dallas,” the Dallas Farmers Market offers a variety of eateries for the lunch hour.

Heritage Village & Old City Park

Home to the largest and finest collection of 19th century pioneer and Victorian homes and commercial buildings in Texas, Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park is a living history museum located in the historic  southeastern edge of downtown. This educational experience, led by Dallas County Heritage Society, will connect participants with the past, inspire the future, and celebrate Dallas’ rich diversity. This exclusive tour encompasses restored and replicated homes, businesses, the Millermore plantation house, churches, and interactive displays from the mid-1800s. Visitors will explore these buildings, learning about the design, construction, and everyday use of traditional structures.

Not only will attendees get a glimpse of the past and experience what life was like in North Texas during the 19th and early 20th centuries, but they will also learn about the land’s history, organizational priorities and initiatives, community partnerships, preservation efforts, and more.
