MARKET VENDOR OF THE WEEK
The Vendor of the Week is Nou’s Garden, operated and managed by Nou Xiong and Blong Vang and family. Their garden is located in Claremore where they have produced a variety of vegetables for at least eight years. They began bringing their produce to the Bartlesville Farmers Market in 2010 since they already had ample amounts. They have all types of vegetables and fruits for the Market, such as squash, tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, okra, kale, carrots, and beets, just to name a few!
Their gardening techniques are fairly simple, involving primarily a good bit of hard work. They begin preparing the soil very early in the year, using organic fertilizer and they do not spray any chemicals. In the summer they spend a lot of time watering vegetables. They learned their gardening techniques from their native county, Laos.
Like most produce vendors, they spend most of the day and evening before the Saturday Market gathering and cleaning vegetables. Sometimes this work expands into the night, depending on the amount of produce they prepare.
