The Canyon Farmers Market takes place on Saturday mornings on the square in Canyon.  They have amazing produce, locally raised beef, honey, and so many other goodies.

For over 5 years the Canyon Farmers Market hosts their Farm to Table Dinner.  This year it's going to be a great time.  All the local vendors that participate in the weekly Farmers Market will be donating their goods for the meal.

Chef Steve Bautista of Gaea Grazing will be serving up some amazing food.  Now since this is "farm to table," Chef Steve doesn't quite have a menu yet.  He will receive the food a few days before the event and will create his wonderful menu when he knows exactly what food he will be given from the vendors.   Just to give you an idea past meals at the Farm to Table event have been street tacos, BBQ kebabs, and Swedish meatballs, and last year's meal was chicken coq au vin with a melon salad, green salad, and several vegetable dishes.

The Abandoned School House Outside of Canyon, Texas

This was once the Jowell School. Built in 1901, the building was the cornerstone of the teeny tiny farming community of Jowell.

The building had been rebuilt and restored in the late '80s or 90s before vandals destroyed it in an act of arson. What remains of the Jowell School sits in a desolate part of rolling farmland between the small towns of Canyon and Happy, Texas.
