We don’t usually put farmers markets in the weekend events because they’re weekly and there are so many. But we’re throwing one in to remind you now more than ever is the time to support our local farmers. Plus, it’s a great time of year to do so with what’s producing right now: expect cauliflower, onions, blackberries, zucchini, greens, chard and potatoes. And we’re close enough to stone fruit season that we may see peaches. Good Local Markets, which does this one, also has a Sunday morning market in Lakewood.

What: White Rock Farmers Market

When: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday

Where: 9150 Garland Road (White Rock)

Katherine Clapner is baking both sweet and savory goods this weekend. Pans of six are available for kolaches (mixed fruit in each pan) and kolabasnek.

What: Kolache and Klobasnek

When: 10 a.m. to noon Saturday

Where: Dude, Sweet Mother Ship, 1340 Inwood Road

Cost: $18 for one pan, $35 for two

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
