As they will at the break of light every Saturday, farmers and gardeners alike showed up at the Comanche County Fairgrounds this past Saturday, to show off their green thumbs. An annual opening that was not only well received, but highly anticipated as the Lawton Farmer's Market opened for yet another season.

This past Saturday at the Fairgrounds, the Farmers Market kicked off their season giving area residents the chance to buy fresh and buy local from 14 different booths, offered gardening tips, recommended local service and even handed out samples and cups of hot coffee. Every Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon, vendors from all over Oklahoma will be offering up fresh produce, while others will offer locally made clothes and crafts to customers from all over southwest Oklahoma, including a 'Made in Oklahoma' booth, offering products strictly made in Oklahoma, including honey and a variety of peanut butter.

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. Anyone interested in becoming a vendor, head to their Facebook page for more information.
