Join the Melon Mania at Dallas Farmer’s Market this Saturday, August 5!

Are you ready for a refreshing, fruitful, and inspiring start to your August? Then we’ve got a juicy plan for you! This Saturday, August 5, 2023, is Watermelon Day at the Dallas Farmer’s Market, and we are calling on you to make it a melon-ful day to remember!

Watermelons are the quintessential summer fruit, and what could be a better way to savor them than by supporting local farmers and the mission of the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB)? This year, we’ve partnered with Kroger for an unbe-melon-able offer: For every watermelon you donate, Kroger will match it melon-for-melon! Yes, you read that right. Each watermelon you bring will mean double the number of fresh, nutritious meals we can provide our North Texas family.

But the sweetness doesn’t stop there! We’re adding a fun twist for early birds. The first 100 people to donate a watermelon will receive a special melon-sized canvas tote as a token of our gratitude. Why not carry your groceries in style while showcasing your support for our mission?

You’re not just donating a melon by joining us this Watermelon Day. You’re also supporting local farmers, promoting healthy food choices, and directly contributing to our fight against hunger. Every melon counts, and every melon makes a difference.

So, dust off those farmer’s hats, grab a watermelon (or two!), and come down to the Dallas Farmer’s Market this Saturday. We promise it’s going to be one in a melon!

Let’s make Watermelon Day a smashing success – because fighting hunger should be as sweet as a ripe, juicy watermelon.
