Fresh & Local: 2011 Summer Guide to OKC+ Farmers’ Markets

Hello friends! IT IS FINALLY HERE!! This is one post that Cale and I look forward to sharing with you every year (well, for two years now…)! We understand first hand that although you may love the idea of simple living it can be difficult to find the extra time, the TLC, the space, and sometimes the money that it takes to grow your own garden. We are passionate about connecting you with resources to help you live a simple lifestyle that still fits within the schedule of real life. So whether you are just looking for a little “filler” to add to your already growing lettuce or plan to buy all your produce locally here is a way you can take advantage of other farmers’ summer bounty!

    Yay for summer produce! Urban Agrarian sets up year-round outside of Cheever’s (23rd & Hudson) from 11am-3pm.

      Hey Lady! I knew that Urban Agrarian was helping with MidTown Market near St. Anthony but was not aware of this one. Can you let me know what day of the week?

    This is so helpful, thank you!

      Thanks Mrs. Layla. You are a true sweetheart. Glad to help.

    Thanks for the list but can you add which ones promote or allow only Oklahoma Grown or Organic/Sustainable.

    For instance, the Edmond Farmers Market allowed people to buy produce from out of state and sell here. They weren’t even a farmer nor knew how it was grown. It was purchased wholesale in Dallas or other areas.

      Kevin,
      Thanks for your input. I will definitely see what I can gather up for you and will consider that information for future guides.

      In the mean time…you maybe able to gather that information by visiting their website or contacting them directly.

      Thanks for stopping by! – Meg
