Historic Farmers Public Market

Flowers as Far as the Eye Can See
Yesterday, I went by the Historic Farmers Public Market near downtown OKC.
Love the old world details of this historic building.
This building is mostly used for events these days like concerts, fairs and roller dirby and 
It's booked solid till 2013 for Weddings each weekend.
The side building is full of antique shops.
But around back and
the reason I stopped were the rows and rows of flowers and plants.
prices were very very good
There is a grocery store here too and many vegetable and fruit vendors.
It's really a hidden gem of OKC.

Beautiful place thanks for sharing!

OK. I've lived here 22 years and didn't know they did that there. We went to a blues concert there once...it was fun. Felt like the floor might crash in...which of course added to the ambience.

We will plan on that next Saturday, I hope. :)

That is a lovely setting for those rows of plants. I would have gotten into trouble.

HI NIta! It looks like a destination spot if I ever come to visit you in my RV someday! lol
I am on the vineyard and have been scouting a few shops, so when I get back I will post on my shopping adventures too.
I love the dusky pink of the building details.

Hi Anita,
What a great place to shop! I love green houses full of lush plants. I stopped at one on Friday and was not very happy with the prices, but I bought several beautiful tomato plants. I just hope they are worth what I paid.
Hugs, Cindy
