Denton Community Market celebrates 10 years

Published on: Thu, Mar 28, 2019

Saturday, April 6th will be the biggest Opening Day yet for the Denton Community Market, as we celebrate our 10th-year anniversary! The Historical Park of Denton County is the place to be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. as the market opens its doors for the start of its season at 317 W. Mulberry Street.

Since its original founding in 2009, the Market has strived to provide great locally-made goods and delicious locally-sourced produce to attendees. In addition to its usual hourly live music, there will also be an Opening Day Ceremony, a History of the Market Exhibit, and the release of a 10th-year anniversary ‘zine. Limited-edition commemorative t-shirts and mugs will be for sale as well.

The schedule of events is as follows:

9:00 – Performance from Platos Theory
10:00 – 10th Year Anniversary Ceremony
11:00 – Performance form Copper Root
12:00 – Performance CityFolk

We hope to see you there for the festivities, shopping, kids’ activities, such as balloon-twisting, and the anniversary highlights! Please note that construction is currently ongoing to upgrade the DCM site at the Historical Park for upgraded electrical infrastructure and for ultimately more vendor space. We have planned the market around that effort. Click here for an updated parking map of downtown Denton. Or skip the parking! Just hop on Denton County Transportation Authority‘s Denton Connect bus Route 7, which has a stop just a block away from the Historical Park!

Up to 90 vendors will be there to sell their locally-produced artisan, food, and farm products. All items are sold by the producers themselves. We will  have farmers that are DCM-certified as local and using sustainable agricultural practices.  Produce, eggs, meat, and dairy will be available.
