Farmer's Market Time: Cherry Street Market Opens Saturday

Tulsans can buy local and fresh this week as area farmers' markets open their 2010 season. 

The AltTulsa gang is fond of the Cherry Street Farmers' Market, but there are farmers' markets all around Green Country. Find one close to home and look for fresh, local produce and other Oklahoma products.

Here's the announcement from the good folks at Cherry Street:
It's  a street party! Join in the fun April 10, 7 – 11 a.m. opening day for the 13th season of the Cherry Street Farmers’ Market.
Yes, it is going to be a real street party since the market will be relocating onto Cherry Street between Quaker and Rockford avenues. To commemorate the occasion we have planned a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 10 a.m. with Mayor Bartlett and District 4 Councilor Maria Barnes.  

There will be more vendors who will have produce, raw foods, breads, beef, cupcakes, and butterfly/bat houses.

Buy Fresh, Buy Local will be on hand to discuss farmers' markets, buying locally and reducing the carbon footprint.  Plant vendors will share valuable knowledge about how to select and care for plant material.
