Come on down and enjoy an old time market…sometimes we’ll have special events and entertainment! While not as diverse as the old Jockey Lot held in downtown McKinney during the mid 20th century, we’ll try to re-create the feel of the old market days. Meet friends, share local news and bring a chair and sit a while!

This event is free and open to the public.
Fact: A bee travels an average of 1,600 round trips in order to produce one ounce of honey; up to six miles per trip. To produce two pounds of honey, bees travel a distance equal to four times around the earth. This class will give students more insight into the life and important work of the honey bee as well as information about how to become a beekeeper including costs, equipment, setup, location, time commitment and resources.
