Yes indeed the Bartlesville Farmers Market will begin another season on May 2, 2015 at the Frank Phillips Park, located at the corner of Frank Phillips and Keeler downtown! The hours, 8 to 11:30 a.m. are the same and many of the vendors are folks you have grown to know over the years and some new ones too.
Other warm season vegetables will be spaghetti and acorn squash, along with their cousins zucchini and yellow squash, many varieties of large and small tomatoes, sweet, banana, and jalapeno peppers, green beans, large and small tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, and eggplant. Still available cool season vegetables will be green and sweet candy onions, carrots, brussel sprouts, herbs (like fresh dill) cilantro, russet and Irish potatoes, cabbage (red and regular plus Nou has huge cabbage!), shelled sweet peas, and asparagus.
What can be more patriotic than a Farmers Market on the Fourth of July? So come by between 8 and 11:30 AM to enjoy some buy some great food and other items. As July begins, it about the last of the cool season vegetables and the start of all those mouth watering things like cantaloupe and sweet corn. Fresh fruit will be Thunderbird blackberries and Porter peaches!
Especially for the Fourth, the Market will be doing a drawing for $10 worth of MARKET BUCKS. To be eligible you must attend the market and purchase something there. Winners will be notified after the market is closed. There will also be a few one-time or special event vendors this Saturday
The Market is excited to have baked goods back-- cinnamon rolls (regular and orange), German chocolate cake, and fresh baked bread sold at Godwana's booth, but baked by Pies N' Such just down the street! Enjoy these great items while drinking iced coffee or tea, or gourmet coffee from Costello Cafe! Also, a returning favorite will be those cold limeades and lemonades from Tuckerbee!
The Market wishes to introduce a new vendor Roark Acres Okie Honey who will have creamed honey (cinnamon and regular), six different scented lotion bars (try black cherry lavender), six different sizes of raw honey, fresh bee pollen and lip balm.
The Washington County Master Gardeners will be at the Market to answer questions about vegetables, trees, shrubs, and other plants. Emphasis will be given to watering techniques for hot weather.
Unfortunately Lakeview Farms will not have eggs this week, but do look for Luman's Farms new supply of pork products, especially that bacon!
