In its ongoing journey to renovate and update, The Crescent in Uptown Dallas is rebooting its farmers market in partnership with Four Seasons Markets, the European-style farmers market organizer that operates a number of markets around Dallas-Fort Worth.
Four Seasons CEO Vincent Hirth confirms that he will begin managing the Crescent Court Farmers Market, which originally launched in October 2016. The opening date for 2017 is Saturday, March 4, 10 am to 3 pm. The market will open on every first Saturday of the month, from March through December. It's located at Cedar Springs Road and Maple Avenue, between the Crescent Court office building and the hotel. Parking is free underground during market hours.
"We are excited to bring one of our markets to a premier venue in Dallas Uptown," Hirth says. "Our markets are for small business owners to promote artisan food products, fresh locally grown and organic produce, plus a variety of unique handmade products."

The first Four Seasons Market opened in 2009 at the Firewheel Town Center, an open-air mall in Garland. Since then, the company has operated over 20 more markets in several cities in North Texas. They're currently managing four markets. Campbell Farmers Market in Richardson, at Campbell and Floyd, accommodates more than 60 local vendors on Saturday. Flower Mound Farmers Market at Parker Square on Saturdays also has over 65 regular vendors. The two other markets take place on Sundays in Carrollton at Josey Lane and George Bush, and in Richardson at Coit and Belt Line roads.
