Extremely high temperatures are hurting some North Texas farmers financially. The hot weather is stunting their crops. They are also worried that the weather is driving away customers at local markets.
Local farmers markets in North Texas are looking for ways to beat the heat. The Coppell Farmers Market has started to offer ice water two times a day and keeps electrolyte drinks to prevent heat exhaustion. Also, the market has set hours from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays to avoid the heat, especially during summers.
