Farmers Market Vendors Find Venue on Highway 82

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, TX--Fresh farmers produce and goods are still being sold throughout the summer in Texoma.

Grayson County Farmers Market vendors are selling their goods on Highway 82, just one mile west of FM 1417.

Watermelons, okra, honey, and other vegetables are being sold, along with a variety of other things.

A Texoma wood worker said that she's been making picture frames for almost 25 years. Her most popular items for sale at the market are garden solar lights.

"Oh, a lot of men and women both say it's a really neat idea," Billie Sanders said. "We really like that you know, and I've sold quite a few of them over the past year."

"I like to see to it that people get good healthy food personally," Frank Cobb said. "I'm sick and tired of going to the grocery store and buying chemical foods that has preservatives in it. You get it home it has no flavor to it, but when you grow it yourself, you know it has the flavor to it."

Sellers say that they plan on staying at this location west of Sherman until the fall. The farmer's market is open every Saturday from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM.
