Summer is officially here, and the temperatures are rising rapidly. There’s no better way to cool down on a hot summer day than with homemade ice cream! The Grand Prairie Farmers Market, 120 W. Main St., will host the second annual Farmers Market Ice Cream Challenge July 7th, from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Charities will go head-to-head to see who has the best homemade ice cream recipe in order to be crowned the champions and win money for their charity. Tickets to sample all charities homemade ice cream and to place your vote, will be sold on-site. Come cool yourself off with ice cream while you enjoy live music, shop the market, and help your favorite charity win money! For more information, call (972) 237-8115 or visit gptx.org/farmersmarket.
