Late Summer’s Local Abundance

We had a beautiful day yesterday at the Cherry Street Farmers Market in Tulsa. Here are a few photos of the wonderful things and people that you can see at CSFM on any given Saturday during a late Oklahoma summer. Wheat grass and mums – one for the body the other for the beds. Cosmetics…

Tasty, frosty and local

There was a buzzz at market yesterday morning. The word spread pretty quick that Claudia of Vine & Branch was in attendance. The market bell (actually it’s a triangle) rings at 7am and I was fourth in line to get my two bags of grapes. Claudia said next week she’ll have more but it no…

Market Day!

Most Saturday mornings we rise extra early and drive through the dark wee hours to the Cherry Street Farmers Market in mid-town Tulsa. The CSFM has been going strong for more than a decade and this year made the leap from a market squeezed into a parking lot to a thriving street market held on…
