  • Sun and Ski Sports
    Since its founding in 1980, Sun & Ski Sports has remained true to its philosophy: “do a few things, but do them better than anybody else.” The shop stocks equipment in five categories of extreme and outdoor activities, including camping, skating, running, bicycling, and water and snow sports. It specializes in these to ensure its merchandise maintains a high standard of quality, and its employees are knowledgeable participants in the sports their department represents. Bikers can drop off their steeds for tune-ups from certified mechanics who put all brands through the rigors of a 12-point inspection, checking chains and adjusting wobbly pedals and malfunctioning spoke-card motors. While waiting, curious eyes might linger on a North Face two-person tent, a Blackburn Airtower bicycle pump, or a vast selection of shoes from brands such as New Balance and Asics. Men and women can traipse nearly barefoot in the park with Vibram FiveFingers, which offer minimal structural encumbrances for a more natural stride, or cast their feet aside for the new-wheeled prowess that comes with a Fuji SL-1 LE Ultegra performance road bike.

  • Urban Acres Market
    Part-time personal chef Steven Bailey was growing tired of bland, industrially processed food. As detailed by D Magazine, Steven was determined to do something about his frustration, so he hit the road one weekend in his Volkswagen Rabbit and began scouring Texas farms and markets for fresher ingredients. The more organic, locally grown food he brought back, the more friends and neighbors started requesting some for themselves. The growing demand led Steven to start Urban Acres, where customers can track down organic produce, dairy, and grass-fed meats from local farmers and artisans who never use pesticides, hormones, artificial flavoring, or shoddy magnetic force fields. As a customer of Urban Acres, customers pick large, medium, or small shares of organic fruits and veggies, as well as meat, coffee, and granola shares if desired. Urban Acres sells locally grown grub at its Oak Cliff Farmstead, which D Magazine says "brings a bit of country to the big city." There, visitors can find shelves and counters fashioned from reclaimed wood, a bee colony on the roof, and produce snuggled in boxes of hay. Urban Acres also offers hands-on educational opportunities to learn about small-scale urban farming.

  • Redenta's Garden
    When she opened the first Redenta’s Garden location in 1992, Ruth Kinler made sure to hire only experienced gardeners. She believed then—and still does—that her employees should be as passionate about the ins and outs of gardening as they are about frolicking among the first buds of spring. Very little has changed in the ensuing two decades; the shop continues to specialize in 100% organic plants and delight area gardeners with its unique varietals. Among the fragrant aisles, one can expect to find rare annuals growing alongside native and water-wise plants, the latter celebrated for their disciplined sipping habits. As organic gardeners themselves, the store’s staff educates customers on seasonal blooms and holds regular classes and events. Though class topics vary, they often include helpful instruction in areas such as organic vegetable gardening, cooking with herbs and vegetables, and safely removing one’s hand from a flytrap. Redenta’s Garden also assists homeowners with modern landscape design that aims for low-maintenance, eco-friendly solutions.:

  • Popcorn Stop
    Popcorn Stop’s confectioners keep fresh kernels popping continuously throughout the day, slinging their gourmet popcorn flavors alongside fudge, candy, and memorabilia. They coat each fluffed morsel in premium ingredients including real cheese and a secret caramel recipe, resulting in popcorn that, unlike a colonial judge's wig, doesn't contain any powder. Decorative pro-sports and college-themed popcorn tins pack up to 6.5 gallons of any flavor—including s'mores, caramel, and spicy-and-hot cheese—into portable snack stations ready for special occasions, business meetings, or at-home munching.
