Bartonville Farmer’s Market

Bartonville Farmer’s Market

For those Denton County residents who crave fresh produce and quality meats but are looking for another option besides their local grocery store, look no further than your neighborhood farmers’ market.

There are a variety of popular markets throughout the area, including Flower Mound and Lewisville. One, in particular, the Bartonville Farmers’ Market, is open every Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to sell-out at the Bartonville Town Center. This market, which has been going strong for eight years with help from Doug’s Country Market, offers locally-grown fruits and vegetables, an unrivaled selection of grass-fed meats, fresh bread, honey, and more. Everything offered is at the peak of freshness, so be sure to get there early and often.

“We try to bring some of the highest quality meats and produce you can find,” said Doug Swafford, owner of Doug’s Country Market. “We are the only one there right now, and many of our customers are repeat customers who have been with us for quite a long time. The rest is by word of mouth; it’s our customers telling others about us.”

Doug’s Country Market has a long reputation as the go-to source for fresh foods. Their products are never irradiated, or nitrogen flash frozen. None of their meats contain chemicals, preservatives, hormones, fillers, inks, dyes, or MSG. They even hand-pick their produce options to ensure there are no pesticides. There is also a large selection of great jams, salsas, all-natural chicken, raised pork, cinnamon rolls, granola, trail mix, pickles, relishes, and much more.

As Doug says, they take pride in every aspect of production and packaging so you get the freshest, healthiest protein money can buy. After all, better taste means better health. “We used to raise our own meat in Ponder, and that’s how I ate when I was growing up,” Doug said. “But just like anybody else, I got lazy and began eating things I should not have and got sick. That’s when I went back to raising my own stuff.”Since 2011, Doug has been farming and raising his own animals for consumption under the belief system that everyone deserves to be confident in how and where their food is grown. Now, anyone in the local area can enjoy grass-fed beef, farm-raised pork, free-range chicken, and fresh produce.

“You won’t find meat like ours at your grocery store,” Doug insists. Doug has been serving tens of thousands of customers at three Farmers’ Markets in the area. There’s the Bartonville Farmers’ Market every Saturday and a separate one for Robson Ranch residents only every Friday from 8-11 a.m. year-round. His third Farmers’ Market, which like Bartonville is open to the public, runs from March through December at the Red Barn Pavilion in Harvest.
