LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –The Lawton and Duncan farmers market kicks off this weekend.

The Lawton Farmers Market starts Saturday, April 2, at 7:30 a.m. and is scheduled to last until noon at the Comanche County Fairgrounds. They’ll have local seasonal produce and a wide variety of specialty items including handmade soap, wine and roasted coffee beans.

“We know everyone appreciates buying directly from farmers and vendors who grow and produce their food products. Our mission is not only to provide Oklahoma growers the opportunity to market their agricultural products directly to the local consumers, but to support the rise in demand for locally grown food,” said Dr. Ed Legako, Southwest Oklahoma Growers Association board president.

The Lawton Farmers Market will be open every Saturday until the end of October and they’ll be open on Wednesday as well starting in June.

The Duncan Farmers Market kicks off a day later on Sunday, April 3, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the west parking lot of Duncan Regional Hospital.

Aside from fresh, locally grown food, they’ll also have face painting.

This is the second year for the Duncan Farmers Market.
