Market is OPEN May 13th, 8am – 12pm!

Celebrate Moms, Grads, and Strawberry Shindy this week at market!

Y’all we cannot wait for tomorrow. In addition to celebrating the season’s favorite berry with the 1st annual DFM Strawberry Shindy, we also get to celebrate YOU! To all the moms, mom-figures, and nurturers out there, we are grateful for you and all you do! And to all you grads, we celebrate your achievements. You did it! We hope you’ll snag your friends and family, and start this weekend’s events off in style with a trip to the market. Because what shindy is complete without the people you love & really really good eats?
