NEWS FLASH!  BARTLESVILLE FARMERS MARKET HIT RECORD PARTICIPATION LEVEL!  On Saturday, July 19th, the local market had a record 1,400 participants!  The crowd enjoyed fresh, local fruits and vegetables, as well as many other items for which the market is known!  Last Saturday also marked the half-way point of the market season, so there remain many opportunities to take advantage of this local phenomenon! 

Speaking of local, it is important for customers to know that the Bartlesville Farmers Market board and staff take that term quite seriously for items sold at the market.  First of all, the working definition of local for the Market is "within a 100 mile radius of Bartlesville".  Second, the growers, producers, and crafts people must grow, produce, or make what they sell.  They may "broker" a few items, but they must have signage showing the customer where the items came from (still must be from within that radius).  Finally, market staff or board members visit the gardens and farms to see the origin of the vendor's vegetables, flowers, meat and eggs.  Pictures are taken and kept on file.  Please look for the "Vendor Visit" plaque which will be displayed after the visits.  If any customer has questions about local produce they are encouraged to see the Market Manager. 

The fresh, warm weather vegetables and fruit are in abundance this year!  Blueberries are probably done, but there are still blackberries, both wild and Sioux.  Watermelon, cantaloupe, and peaches are fresh and juicy!  Sweet corn is still available along with many kinds of tomatoes.

In addition to the above, other warm season vegetables and herbs offered are: green beans, yard long beans (these are very tasty!), cucumbers (many kinds), sweet and hot peppers (many kinds), potatoes, basil, garlic chives, squash (zucchini, pan, and yellow),eggplant, shallots, mature onions, okra, and Malabar, Thai, and Chinese spinach.

A few cool season vegetables will still be available:
kale, broccoli, Chinese broccoli, cabbage, turnips, beets, carrots, and kohlrabi. 

Other items at the market include:
--bingo at 9:15 with now two chances to win a large sampling of the Market!
--local honey, jams, and jellies
--Adrienne's specialty breads and tasty cookies
--great food from Granny's Vittles, including coffee and sweet rolls
--join Friends of the Farmers and get a neat shirt and a good chance to win $50 worth of Market Money (spend it at the Market)
--many beautiful cut flowers, insect repellant, gourd art--the flowers are really coming on!
--eggs, grass fed beef (such as sirloin steak), and free range pork (great hillbilly bacon) (free range chicken is coming!)
--free advice from Master Gardener's (every other Saturday)
--various soaps, and natural skin care items
