Something New At The Dallas Farmers Market

by Steven Doyle

I stumbled through the Shed 2 at the Dallas Farmers Market which boasts more than a few really nice food vendors including some of the best barbecue in Dallas, Pecan Lodge and my favorite Reuben at Old World Sausage Company. This weekend I saw a few changes and additions that you should check out.

There is a new restaurant offering sandwiches, wraps and paninis called Frenchie’s Bistro which is in the old Natsumi spot.      

Also, if you recall, Fudgemaker’s bought the old gelato equipment from Natsumi and went to Concord, North Carolina to study up on gelato making for a week.  There Ruth Ann and Bill Glover studied the finer points of gelato and sorbetto production.

The class paid dividends and the couple started making their new products this weekend to a sell out crowd.  I  just missed the sea salt caramel gelato, but enjoyed a sampling of the sorbet’s.  This is a smooth soft serve-style sorbet with several fresh fruit flavors.

I also spied the new equipment for the cheese monger that is moving in to the building just across from the new Frenchie’s Bistro. Word is the space will be completed in a solid three weeks. I spotted the owner of Cheese Peddlers,  Bob Zayus, and he was excited about the new business and has been busy placing orders in preparation.

Keep these vendors in business and stop in this week for a visit.

    You never mentioned Becker’s Seafood! Didn’t you see it?
    Their seafood is some of the best in Dallas. And, less expensive than all the other seafood stores.
    The best smoked salmon in Dallas at $18.99 LB.
    Under 8, fresh head on shrimp at $11.99 LB.
