Owner Name: Duanne Cherry
About: As a native of Sulphur Springs, the dairy capital of Texas, farming is in my DNA. Several years ago, I became concerned about where the food we eat comes from, how it was grown and how the farming of our food was affecting our environment. I spent my fair share of time eating packaged food during my military career. After the military, I headed into corporate America but knew that was not my calling. In 2019 after a layoff at a large computer company, I decided to pursue my passion and become a pastured chicken farmer. My mission is to raise antibiotic free, non-GMO pastured poultry that is processed with-out chemicals. Our chickens live on pasture and are moved daily which creates an eco-friendly environment and healthy chickens.

The Lucas Farmers Market was established in 2019, by the Lucas Farmers Market Committee, with backing by the City of Lucas, Texas. We are located next to Lucas City Hall at Lucas Community Park, 665 Country Club Road, Lucas, TX 75002. Our goal is to create a safe and pleasant social experience for our community by providing local and organic meat, honey and produce. Market vendors also offer baked goods, artisan and specialty foods, plants & flowers and more!
Vendors are invited to fill out an online application and read our rules here. Applications will be reviewed by the Lucas Farmers Market Committee (LFMC). LFMC will notify by email those vendors who have been approved. We will maintain a vendor mix with a primary focus on agricultural producers. LFMU evaluates cottage food, specialty and artisan vendors based on product quality and customer demand.
The Lucas Farmers Market has approximately 150 parking spaces, including 80 spaces behind City Hall. Traffic personnel will direct you to an open space. Once they have unloaded, vendors must move their vehicles to the back parking lot.
