TULSA - Saturday marked the end of the regular season for the Cherry Street Farmer's Market, but there's good news for customers.
For the first time, Cherry Street Farmer's Market will offer a winter market, starting on November 3rd.
One of the reasons a winter market is being offered is because of the growing popularity of the regular season market.
"The attendance has been fantastic. More and more people are finding us and we really have a wonderful amount of vendors and customers that come out," said market manager Lisa Brandborg.
While there will be fewer vendors in the winter season, Brandborg expects it to still be successful.
"We think it's going to be a really big wonderful winter market because we've got so many farmers that do things year round," said Brandborg.
Brandborg said there will be quite a selection of products, including vegetables, dairy and meat.
Stanley Johnson will be one of the vendors taking advantage of the winter market.
As owner of Lomah Dairy, near Wyandotte, Johnson depends on the regular season market for exposure.
"We've been able to develop a lot of personal business relationships with customers and spread the word about good wholesome milk," said Johnson. "People are very receptive and very progressive-minded in Tulsa."
He hopes he will experience the same thing in the winter.
As with the regular season, all products offered at the winter market will be made by the vendors who sell them, said Brandborg.
The winter market begins on November 3rd and be offered every other Saturday through March.
The specific dates are as follows: 11/3, 11/17, 12/1, 12/15, 12/29, 1/12, 1/26, 2/9, 2/23, 3/9, 3/23, and 3/30.
The market will be in Brookside, in the parking lot of Food Pyramid, located at 41st and Peoria.
The regular market resumes in April.
