He performed at last year’s dinner and booked three weddings from his performance!

Goodies from local vendors will be on your table for you to take home when the evening is done – ENJOY!

The goal of KFM’s Farm to Table Dinner is to celebrate all who contribute to a local food system, thank our farmers and producers, raise awareness of the value of meals based on farm-direct markets, and support local food access to all.
Tickets are $100.00 each. KFM is a 501(c)(3) organization making your purchases 100% tax-deductible. The Keller Farmers Market is located at 400 Bear Creek Parkway, near the creek at the beautiful Bear Creek Park.
Last years event sold out really quick. Be sure to purchase your tickets early so you won’t miss out on this wonderful event.
The Keller Farmers Market is a casual, open air, seasonal market near the creek at the beautiful Bear Creek Park that offers fresh Texas produce, meats, tamales, baked goods, artisan bread, cheese, salsa, pasta, pickles, jellies and jams, honey, baked goods, prepared foods, pet products and crafts, all from the state of Texas or within 150 miles. KFM is a convenient and safe place for the whole family. After your market visit, enjoy the relaxing walking trails and large parks surrounding the area. Every Saturday from May to November, the market offers something different – whether it’s the freshest produce, live music, chef demonstrations, or health and wellness presentations – making it is as much a center of commerce as it is for the community to reconnect. Our market is open rain or shine, but may close without prior notice during extreme weather conditions in order to maintain the safety of shoppers and vendors. It’s a great place to bring the kids, throw a Frisbee, and pick up great local food products. Come experience the market. Learn from the farmers and wellness providers. Talk with local artisans. Make your own statement in support of local food!
