For The Love of Jack Son

There is a reason we are Dallas Dwellers. We love seeing what a strong community Dallas is, and when one of our own has a need we come together and help.

Thanksgiving morning a man who is very dear to the Dallas food, fashion, and arts community had a stroke that left him in ICU for an extended period of time. Like so many he didn't have health insurance, and he has not only had to worry about getting better, he also has to think about how he is going to pay for that life saving care. This is a lesson to all of us.

Jack Son has always been there for so many people, and now it was time for them to step up for him. His "tribe" organized For The Love of Jackson - an amazing event where everyone came together and celebrated this very special man.

We are so glad that he is a fighter, and is getting better every day. We love you Jack Son!


Farmers Market Weekends

We are so happy that not only are our regular farmer's markets open, we even have a new one that is quickly becoming our favorite.

The Dallas Farmers Market has new management, and we've become disillusioned with what they are doing, so we decided to check out some of the other options that as Dallas Dwellers we have.

We started shopping at the Good Local Markets last year, and were thrilled that they added one every Saturday morning in Oak Cliff. The nicest farmers and artisans with fair pricing and a wonderful selection - you have to get there early though because they keep selling out!

Their tag line is "Only Local. All Good." and their mission is to strengthen the local food economy. We will share more soon, but know we'll be eating well having these markets in the neighborhood.

Our mission is to strengthen the local food economy and create awareness of the social, environmental and health benefits of growing and eating local food. With new and continuing programs, Good Local Markets promotes the health of our communities, the health of local businesses and the health of our local food system.
