Use this Farmers Market Finder to locate farmers market in Oklahoma.
Most markets are seasonal (April to late October), but a few are open year-round. Each market has its own style and atmosphere depending on its surrounding community. More and more markets are becoming certified to accept electronic food stamps (EBT cards). Each market will have an information booth or table staffed with people who can answer specific questions about their particular market.
Use the USDA Farmers Markets Search to find markets across the county. Due to their flexible locations, some community farmers markets provide fresh, healthy foods when other sources aren't as easily accessed in rural or economically challenged areas.

Oklahoma City is working to become a city that encourages better health through diet, exercise and access to public transportation. As part of Oklahoma City-County Health Department's Community Transformation Grant from the CDC, OKC's Planning Department was able to hire a planner dedicated to complete streets, access to healthy foods, access to physical activity, and assessing the city's pressing health needs.
