SHENANDOAH, TX -- The Shenandoah CVB and Sam Moon Group are launching a farmers market in Shenandoah on April 10. The market is a collaboration between Metropark Square and Your Neighborhood Farmers Market Association (YNFMA), the largest certified community farmers market in Texas. A curated vendor list provides a diverse variety of farm-fresh produce, organic sauces and seasonings, baked goods, grass-fed meat, handcrafted refreshments and even dog treats for those wishing to bring their four-legged friends. Additionally, artisans will be included, and will be selling their hand-crafted items. Everything is grown, made, or built locally in Texas. “We wanted to collaborate with an organization that supports Texas farmers and small businesses,” said Daniel Moon, Vice President of Sam Moon Group. “The event will be a wonderful source of entertainment for the community and create more access to organic products.” “We’re thrilled to work with both the Sam Moon Group and YNFMA to bring this TDA-certified market to the area, and feel it can enhance our sense of community and the quality of life for residents and those in the surrounding area,” said John Mayner, Director, Shenandoah Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The Shenandoah Farmers Market will be held on the second Saturday of each month, from 11 am to 3 pm, around the green space at Metropark Square. The April market is expected to have about 25 vendors, along with participation from businesses within Metropark Square and Sam Moon Center. The Shenandoah Farmers Market is certified with the Texas Department of Agriculture and is a part of its “Go Texan” program.

CDC guidelines will be enforced and we ask guests to practice social distancing and wear masks while patronizing the market. Hand sanitizing stations will be setup throughout the event.
