We at AltTulsa look forward every spring to the return of the Cherry Street Farmers' Market, where Tulsa-area growers, bakers, and producers sell local fruits, veggies, flowers, herbs and more. This year the Cherry Street Market opens Saturday, April 14, at its usual location in Lincoln Plaza, just east of Peoria on 15th Street.
Thanks to the Tulsa World, we learn that two additional farmers' markets will be opening in midtown Tulsa this spring. In May, the Cherry Street folks will be opening a new farmers' market in Brookside, at the corner of 41st Street and Peoria, every Wednesday morning from 8 until noon.
The other new farmers' market will be on Thursdays from 4-8 p.m. at Peoria at 6th Street, in the Pearl District of Tulsa. This neighborhood, just east of downtown Tulsa, is being revitalized with townhouses and the new Centennial Park. The market will open April 5 in the parking lot near the park. The Pearl District Market is being organized by our friends at Sustainable Green Country.
This is good news for folks who want to support local agriculture and local producers. We'll see you there.
