Buying local at the Lawton Farmers Market

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Lawton Farmers Market kicked off their season Saturday, and residents got out to buy local. The farmers market is at the Great Plains Coliseum, and will happen every Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon. Vendors from all over southwest Oklahoma brought out their produce to sell, and some had more than just food. Locally made clothes and crafts were also for sale.

This is a day farmers and gardeners like Mary Molsbee look forward to showing off their products.

"I hope I have a good crop, and it looks good and everything," said Molsbee. "I mean that's what we try to do, and maybe it'll make good!"

There was also a 'Made in Oklahoma' booth where you could buy products strictly made in Oklahoma. They had honey and different kinds of peanut butter available for purchase.

Organizers of the farmers market want to encourage anyone with a garden, no matter how small, to contact them about getting a booth to sell their produce.

If you are interested, you can find them on their Facebook page.
