McKinney Farmers Market

From farm-fresh produce and dairy to meats and bakery items, there are plenty of healthy options available. An added bonus - many McKinney restaurants craft their menus around the locally-grown foods they can procure seasonally.

Consistently ranked as one of the top farmers' markets in Texas, McKinney Farmers Market at Chestnut Square is a market you will want to return to time and time again. In addition to a wide variety of vendors offering local, grass-fed beef and free-range chicken, eggs, and farm fresh produce shoppers will also find specialty items such as tamales, pastries, teas, ginger beer, jerky and so much more.

Another unique feature of the Chestnut Square Market is the wide selection of arts and crafts vendors who offer everything from locally made goat milk soap, walking sticks, jewelry, candles, and more!
