ABOUT OUR MARKET
Our Farmers Market is unique in the area as it is a Producer Only market which is a direct-to-consumer marketplace that is exclusively available for producers that raise, grow or make their own products. All items for sale at our market must be homegrown, handmade and/or vendor-created from locally-owned operations within the state of Oklahoma.
Free parking during market weekends is available around the perimeter of the Park and in the special event parking lot on the northwest corner of Oklahoma City Boulevard and Thunder Drive across from Paycom Center.
The popular, drive-up loading zone on Oklahoma City Boulevard called the Veggie Valet will continue this season. Guests are invited to hold their packages at the Veggie Valet as they shop, and then pull their cars up for curbside package pickup.
The Farmers Market Information Tent is available for shoppers to visit with Park staff, purchase Scissortail Park merchandise, and find information on the nutrition assistance programs the market offers including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Assistance Program (SFMNP), Double Up Oklahoma (DUO) and OKFresh.

We are committed to creating a top-quality, destination Farmers Market for all of Oklahoma City. Our journey began in late 2019 when we partnered with OSU-OKC to move their established market from the campus venue to the vibrant, downtown location at Scissortail Park. With support from OSU-OKC, we were able to offer Oklahoma City’s newest outdoor market in spring 2020. Our outdoor facility provided ample social distancing and other safety protocols to allow shoppers and market producers a safe shopping experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. that continued through the 2021 market season.
Beginning in April for the 2022 season, OSU-OKC has moved from a naming partner to supporting the Farmers Market at Scissortail Park through classes and other programming. We are so grateful for their support over the years and for helping us to bring the market to Scissortail Park.
Our mission is to provide downtown Oklahoma City with fresh, made in Oklahoma produce and goods while supporting local farmers, producers, and artisans.
We are proud to be a part of the incredible network of markets across the state to support shopping locally. To see information about these markets in Oklahoma, visit http://bit.ly/MarketsinOK
