OXFORD Ė Donít miss out on the wonderful opportunity to buy fresh veggies and fruit (like plump blueberries and currants), eggs from free-range chickens, preserves in jars with pretty fabric toppers, fresh cut flowers, herbs, and more at the Farmers Market in LaFayette Park. Each Saturday morning, from 9 a.m. to noon, now through the beginning of September (weather permitting), farmers, bakers, and other merchants will be set up for business in the Park. Thereís even a surprise once in awhile!
Farmersí markets provide a place for local growers to sell their products directly to the public. The consumers get fresh fruits and vegetables, support local agriculture, and the farmer gets a better than wholesale, price for their products. For discerning shoppers, and to support your local farmers, come to Oxfordís own Farmersí Market, right in LaFayette Park. Local entrepreneurs such as Kim Marshman of The Barnyard, Bill Brower of Shadeyside Farm, Frank and Nancy Lananna of Mother Natureís Fresh Produce Stand, the Kevin Meek Farm, and Mina Takahashi and Marco Breuer of Holler Farm, set up stands selling fresh produce and hand crafted wares. Itís well worth a visit to meet the farmers and see whatís the best, freshest, and most unique!
