NORMAN — The Norman Farm Market has come a long way since a few vendors set up shop at the county fairgrounds 35 years ago. The season is much longer, now, with spring and fall crops as well as the usual summer offerings.
The popular market will make a big change this year. Wednesday morning markets are now a thing of the past. The market will now open from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday evenings and from 8 a.m. until noon Saturdays.
The change was made to accommodate working folks who might want to pick up some items on the way home.
Before, they had to leave them in their car throughout the day if they came before work or at lunch.
Some 50 vendors are signed up this year, about four times the number that participated the first season. The first sale this year will be April 5. A special 35th anniversary day celebration will be held May 17.
