Find local produce at OSU-OKCís weekly farmers market

By Kennedy Parker / Lifestyle / August 27, 2019

The OSU-OKC Farmers Market offers farm-fresh goods for you every week. The market is part of the Oklahoma Grown Farmers Market program, so every item sold at the market is grown or made in Oklahoma.

The market is located on the OSU-OKC campus at 400 N. Portland Ave., so it’s easy to get to no matter where you live in the metro. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program card is accepted at the market and thanks to the Fair Food Network’s Double Up Bucks, SNAP goes twice as far at the farmers market. People who received SNAP benefits can get twice as much to spend on Oklahoma-grown produce.

On Saturdays, the market is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Take your own bags and bring home fresh produce, dairy, eggs, meats, nuts, baked items and processed foods. There are even some items that are certified organic.

The market switches from summer to winter on Oct. 31. But there will still be plenty of tasty items to take home. Several growers offer hot-house and hydroponic produce while others sell dairy, meat, baked items, eggs and nuts. During the winter hours, the market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Saturday mornings are always a fun time at the market, with live music and sometimes a food truck on site. It’s a great way to support the agricultural industry without having to leave the city.
