Fresh and Local: Fresh & Local: 2010 Summer Guide to OKC+ Farmers’ Markets

Cale and I love to support local businesses and help communities build sustainability. It takes time, labor, and love, but it’s worth it. Recently in a personal attempt to build a better relationship with our community we’ve partnered with a local boutique, Gypsy Haven, in downtown Jones, OK. Our hope is that by using our dirt covered veggies as bait we can lure in local shoppers and possibly support our ever-growing garden addiction.

A few questions that sparked this little adventure for us were…What’s around us? What kind of resources do we have that can enrich our local community? If you’re asking these questions as well, we’ve compiled a list of local Oklahoma City Farmers’ Markets to give you a place to start supporting local businesses and farmers.

In the meantime we’ll be in downtown Jones every Thursday night throughout the summer alluring the guys and gals from the cattle auction with our beautiful vegetables! Enjoy!

      It’s so hard to keep track of them all and even the information online is always changing! But the fresh produce is worth the search to find it. Glad we could help.

    Hi, Meg and Cale. I’m so glad you posted this information. I’ve wanted to check out the farmers’ markets when I’m in OKC for the weekend, but didn’t know when and where they were. Tim and I will definitely have to check them out soon. Thanks.
