Urban Acres’ farm store finds a new home with major patio potential
Recycle, reuse, and ... renovate!
OAK CLIFF It all started with a fateful road-trip in a dusty Volkswagen Rabbit, and now Dallas has some of Texas’ very best “rabbit food.” Conceived of while a group of friends back-roaded through small towns and down dirt roads, Urban Acres is an Oak Cliff based “co-op style” company that brings local and organic produce straight to North Texas. The UA team plans to hit the road again in 2013, but this time they're moving and shaking into a new location with a major patio and room to grow.
Currently on West Davis, the Urban Acres store will move into the old gas station building next to Mama Connie’s Diner on the corner of Beckley & Greenbriar. They’ll continue their “co-op style” farm stands at locations all around DFW where members pick up produce biweekly. The store is open Friday through Sunday and carries a selection of hard-to-find grocery items from coconut oil to sprouted raw nuts, as well as local raw honey, and low-pasteurized, non-homogenized milk.
The move and re-opening is slated for spring 2013.
