Inspired by the iconic European markets, where food, art, music, and people comingle in colorful open-air emporiums, Frisco Fresh Market (FFM) opened in June 2018 with a vision to connect the community and bring sustainable, healthy food to North Texans.
In addition to promoting specialty foods and products from artisans, crafters, farmers, and merchants, FFM enjoys helping you get to know your neighborhood! Open year-round, they’ve become a favorite spot for people to spend time on the weekends, not only to shop or eat but to enjoy one of the many unique FFM events.
Kid-friendly, adult-friendly, and pet-friendly, Frisco Fresh Market is committed to our community. As we enter the busiest season of the year, they’ve prepared a full calendar of special events that will not disappoint.
Grab your calendar and let’s go!

Countdown 2 Escape Holiday Escape Rooms
In partnership with Frisco Fresh Market, Countdown 2 Escape is offering new adventures as they launch pop-up Holiday Escape Rooms with two new seasonal themes!
From November 1, 2019 – January 15, 2020, enjoy three holiday-themed, family-friendly escape rooms on the premises of Frisco Fresh Market. A large, thoughtfully designed covered patio will be available for parties and corporate groups with beer and wine for purchase.
Guests can choose from two identical “Who Stole Christmas?” rooms for groups to compete against the clock – and each other if they like – and one large “Escaping Winter” room. Here’s a taste of the new seasonal themes:
Escaping Winter: The Ice Queen has taken over the land, spreading a deep front over everything and leaving us with an ice-cold winter frost. She’s stolen the Spring Goddess’ wand with her divine power. It’s up to you to get her wand back and restore warmth to the land. Can you save the world, or will you be stuck in an icy land forever?
Who Stole Christmas? ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, bickering erupted, who knew what about? One by one, the family went out for air, and when they came back, the presents were bare. Escapers have 60 minutes to figure out who stole Christmas and save the holidays for everyone!
Pet Adoption Event
November 9, 2019
The Collin County Animal Services are returning to the market with a handful of dogs currently up for adoption. All of the dogs they bring will be spayed/microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm tested.
Come out and play with these sweet dogs who are looking for a new home! They could be the perfect addition to your family this season. The Collin County Animal Services have been at the Frisco Fresh Market several times already, and each time some of their dogs found their forever homes.
Petting Zoo Fun
November 24, 2019
With hopefully cooler temperatures, the Petting Zoo is coming back out in November! Again, with a thirty-five-animal miniature farm. Come play with mini goats, sheep, rabbits, ducks, chickens, a mini cow, a mini donkey, a mini horse, and a piggy. Entry is $5 a person/child entering the enclosure! Get there early and don’t miss out on the fun and cuteness and a perfect photo opportunity.
Tree Lighting Ceremony
November 29, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Get into the holiday spirit with friends and family by attending the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony! FFM will be lighting up both market sheds with spectacular lights and they’ll have tons of decor up to help everyone get into the holiday spirit!
Santa Claus will make an early appearance for photos and storytime. The lighting ceremony will start at approximately 6:30 pm, and it promises to be MAGICAL!
Nov 29, 2019 – December 22, 2019
Most likely to be the highlight of the season is this most spectacular event for the whole family! This one-of-a-kind unique experience will incorporate three acres of a spectacular Winter Wonderland complete with flying snow.

You can get lost in a light maze, fall into the snow pits, speed down the snow slide, wander through fairyland, giggle in elfland, explore candy land, enjoy nightly movies in the theatre and indulge in all of the scrumptious treats and foods all in one night.
With designated areas for children, teens and adults you can enjoy an interactive Santa experience, tons of selfie stations, food trucks, DJ music, live performances, and adult beverages in the “Angry Elf Bar”.
