Farmers Market - Coppell, TX

We walked.  Every Saturday morning Coppell has a farmer's market.  It is about a mile and a half from our house.  Hubby asked to go!  I grabbed my walking shoes and a market bag.  I didn't have cash, but most all the vendors now have debit card swipe thingies on their phones.  Gotta love technology.

Coppell was never a large town, won't ever be either.  We will max out around 40,000.  All we have in our "downtown" is a few old buildings on one tiny corner.  So what do you do? You build a mini downtown.

These darling homes are being built around a square that will be home to the farmer's market and some retail shops.  The whole thing is about a four-five block area.

The home's really will be "darling", front porches and all.  I hope they move our fourth of July parade here one day.

There are a few original home hold outs.  This little one has been cute yellow since we moved here twenty years ago.  The corner below will be open for tours someday.

It was a great morning, oh yeah what did we come home with? TAMALES of course.  We are in TEXAS.  Fresh made in west Dallas.  Had them for dinner last night with fresh homemade guacamole.

NOW, if you made it all the way to the end of this post (lucky you) you get to see a sneak peek of the grand-twins new curtains for their nursery.  I made a trip to McKinney yesterday and spend a few hours with Ann Marie and Michael.  I forgot Ann Marie only had a hand me down sewing machine.  I did bring thread and the fabric. Thank goodness it still had the instruction manual.  I gave her the smocked rocking horse dress at their reveal party, if you missed it you can go here.

Next project ~ bumper pads and dust ruffles.  We'll have to make enough for two baby beds.  Ann Marie is 5 months along.  She felt the babes last week!  And has felt great the whole time, no morning sickness at all.  Just like her Mom 27 years ago. So if the babies come early like she and her sister did we only have three months left! YIKES!


  1. I didn't know that your daughter was having twins...oh how exciting!!!! A farmers market in walking distance is so nice...lucky you.


  2. Hi Lori,
    It's amazing what doctors can do to keep twin babies incubating long enough for a healthy start. Angela started threatening early delivery early on and her doc had her taking these little white pills to postpone labor. The day he told her to stop taking them, that the girls were large and healthy enough, she immediately starting having contractions nonstop. I think she went only a day or two before labor ensued. Decorating a nursery for two is SO MUCH FUN! I bought wooden letters from Hobby Lobby to spell out the girls' names and painted them to match the bedding..... Gee, I find myself yearning for another grand baby soon..... They are trying, but thus far with no success. The cancer treatment may have caused my son to be unable to father more children, likely not, but we won't know unless he is tested to know for sure.


  3. Twins? How exciting!

    I had twins too... it is the my most read post (located on my sidebar). I hope she continues to have a comfortable and stress free pregnancy and an easy delivery.

    I just love the little Texas towns with a town square. Those new homes should fit right in with their vintage design... so unusual to see new homes that are not brick.

  6. I need to check out the Farmer's Market! And love those curtains!

  7. I love this post! What did you buy at the market?

  8. Your market sounds like so much fun. I confess that we have never been to ours. It's always so HOT! I love the little houses they are building. They ARE darling!
    And, I'm sure the excitement is building for those twins. The nursery will be darling too, I'm sure.

  9. Oh, I love farmer's markets and this sounds so fun! Such a cute place too. Thanks for popping in to see me and hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
