Grapevine Texas had a market and a farmers market on Thursdays and Saturdays

I have discovered a most delightful activity that happens every Thursday and Saturday in downtown Grapevine. They call it Grapevine Market and Farmers Market.
Grapevine is one of those towns in Texas that has re-invented itself. It has an old Main Street that has become the nucleus of a great entertainment venue. Grapevine Mills, The Gaylord Texas and Great Wolf Lodge have all sprung up around what once was just another small town in Texas. Add that to the fact that Grapevine Lake is nearby and you could spend an entire vacation there without going very far.
I digress though. Grapevine has lots of festivities to keep you coming back. Main Street days, and Grapefest to name two. You don't have to wait until then to do something special on any given Thursday and Saturday from May until the end of October. From 10:00 until 2:00 on those days there is a Market in the park. Temporary stalls sell everything from Sunglasses to shoe decorations. On the other side, there is a farmers Market from 10:00 until 4:00. Fresh produce and homemade salsa and tortillas are available. Produce included tomatoes, peaches, cantaloupe, berries, and watermelon as well as vegetables.
After the Market visit, a walk downtown to the boutiques and gift shops filled the day with my kind of fun. Add to that, an excellent lunch and I call that a perfect day.
Check out the Grapevine Website for more information and activities year round.
