It was a long time coming but this year we finally joined the farmers market community! We attended the Oklahoma City Public Market downtown at the beginning of August and are now at the Edmond Farmers Market every weekend. If you don’t already know, the farmer’s market district is making a comeback! Urban Agrarian has been calling the district home for many years and now, the old public market building is reprising its role as a beautiful, indoor farmers market. You can find crafts, flowers, and vegetables all under one roof. It’s still a growing market but we were happy to be included!
The Edmond Farmers Market has been around for over 25 years and has loyal vendors that come back every year, and we know why! The people we have met and the now “regulars” that we get to see every weekend has made us treasure our weekly markets. We have fresh, free-range chicken eggs (non-GMO), okra, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and jalapenos. And, for the last 2 weeks we have also had our Cushaw Squash and pumpkins!
The Edmond market is located at the corner of Broadway and 2nd Street near downtown Edmond at the Festival Marketplace. This market runs from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. We will have all of our goodies at this market until the end of October. We will also be joining the Uptown 23rd Farmers Market for their September event on Sunday, September 27 from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
All of our vegetable varieties are non-GMO and 100% chemical/pesticide free. If we have bugs or pests, we get them with our hands and they are either chicken snacks or no longer with us… Growing your own food is most assuredly a labor of love but we do it for you! We know how important it is to know where your food is coming from.
We have made one big change since starting the market and that is that we have temporarily put our pick-up locations in downtown OKC & Edmond on hold. Since you can find us at the farmers markets every weekend, we decided it would be easiest to have everyone pick up their eggs at the market. But we will be starting the pick-up locations back up the week of November 2nd!
We truly can’t express what this year at the market has done for us. The people we have met and the things we have learned are invaluable. We just want to say
