White Rock Local Market is a non-profit, independent farmers market, a public space offering a venue for local farmers, ranchers, and artisans to bring what they grow or make and sell directly to our East Dallas neighborhood. Our mission is to strengthen our community by creating a meeting place for residents to buy fresh, local and healthy foods, and quality arts and crafts.

WRLM is held twice a month – the second and fourth Saturday – at The Green Spot Market and Fuels. The second Saturday includes all vendors – food and crafts. The fourth Saturday is just for farmers, growers and artisan foods.

Annual celebration of the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet. Activities planned for this year include fitness demonstrations, guest speakers, informational tables, vegan cooking demos, free food sampling, and more.
