Tahlequah Farmers’ Market opened for its third season Saturday.

TAHLEQUAH — Saturday’s dreaded early morning deluge failed to materialize, and a few rays of sun even peeked out as shoppers wandered through the colorful tents displaying fresh items at the Tahlequah Farmers’ Market.

The market, now in its third year, offered garden-fresh vegetables, locally produced meats, and other specialty items such as homemade soaps and artisan breads. The market is open from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday in the parking lot of First Lutheran Church, behind Reasor’s.

While shoppers at the market may not be able to meet the hens that laid the eggs they’re buying, they can talk with the person who fed the chickens and gathered the eggs fresh that morning. They can discuss how the produce they purchase was raised, and frequently exchange gardening gossip with fellow enthusiasts.
