I’m new to north Texas and was just wondering about Farmers Markets in the area. Thanks for the info. I’m going to make a note of them.
We have some good ones in the DFW area. I’m sure you’ll find a favorite. Welcome to Texas.
The monster truck jam sounds like so much fun! Here in Canada it can be hard to find ways to have fun and stay warm in winter. I am considering going to Disney On Ice even though I don’t have kids haha.
