Midlothian Farmers Market
A Pleasant Surprise!
This past Saturday, the 12th, my morning excursion was to visit the Midlothian Farmers Market located in the Log Cabin Park in the center of downtown Midlothian. The Farmers Market has been operating for several years, and while not one of the largest in our area, it is certainly one of the most pleasant to visit.
The market opens a 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM every Saturday. In the early morning it is normally nice as the heat of the day has not arrived. But as a Texan, the first think I look for anytime during the day is shade! And there is plenty of that at this formers market. The market is situate in the middle of the Log Cabin l park and is surrounded by trees with lots of shade and normally a soft breeze. There is a nice side walk which connects all the booths and makes for easy strolling. And there is plenty of close up parking! Normally, you can find ten or more vendors set up selling a variety of items from honey, jewelry to vegetables and foods.
A Nice Place to Shop - Heaven's Attic
The other day I was having breakfast at one of my favorite restaurants, Kim and Jenny's, in downtown Midlothian, and noticed a few new businesses nearby. Being a reporter, I decided to explore all the new businesses.
Along North 8th Street there is quaint little park with lots of shade, important to all Texans, as well as a historic cabin. This is the area where the farmers market sets up shop on Saturdays during the summer. There is plenty of parking with all businesses easily accessible on foot. The downtown area, while not as large as some of the other towns here in Ellis County, does have a good number of shops and restaurants offering a nice variety of wares and services.
