If you enjoyed the Market Boxes in the past from the Texas Farmers’ Market then you will be happy to know that they are doing it again this year. The program will run from Monday, October 17 and will go until Friday, November 18.

You will need to pre-order your box. The pre-ordering phase will begin one week in advance and then close each Monday at 12 PM. The boxes will be ready each Friday from noon to 4 PM and will be available to pick up at the Southwest Center located at 3222 W 7th Street in Texarkana, Texas.

Something new this year will be a recipe included in the box each week. Giving you the opportunity to follow the recipe at home. This can be a fun activity with the family and it may give you new ideas on preparing locally grown produce and foods.

Beck Beckham, the Market Manager said in a press release;

“These market boxes are packed with fall favorites from the best vendors around. Cut your shopping and cooking time in half, and shop at our virtual market. Order yours and let’s get cooking!”
