MARKET VENDOR OF THE WEEK
The vendor of the week is Rock Acres, operated by Mike and Tammy Melton. Their farm is located five miles north of Copan, Oklahoma. They have been vendors at the Market or on the Market Board for nine years, which is the entire life of the Bartlesville Market. In the past they have sold vegetables, eggs, herb based soaps, wood chips, and brought their food wagon.
They started in 2012 buying Kiowa plants from a commercial nursery and now they only replant shoots from their blackberry plants. Kiowa blackberries are purported to be the largest marketable blackberry. Mike and Tammy also think they have the most thorns!
Of all the produce the Meltons have grown, they like blackberries the best. If this winter is “kind” they should double their production in 2017!

Calling all Vendors. The Market will have its Vendor meeting for current and prospective vendors Thursday, April 6, 2017, at the new pavilion in Johnstone Park at NE Cherokee Ave and E Hensley BLVD., Bartlesville, at 6:30pm
The new contact phone number to reach Bartlesville Area Farmers Market is 918-534-6542.
The pavilion is ready at the corner of Tuxedo Blvd and Cherokee Ave in downtown Bartlesville and we have confirmation that the Bartlesville Area Farmers Market has that pavilion reserved on Saturday mornings from May through October. The restrooms have been completed and they are working on parking.
This is going to be a phenomenal place for us to have the Farmers Market this summer, much easier set up for the vendors and lots of space for our customers and visitors to walk around and visit and look at all the vendors have to offer.
If you or someone you know is interested in serving on the Bartlesville Area Farmers Market Board, please have them call the number listed above, we will also be accepting nominations at the meeting.
There is more, so much more, at YOUR BARTLESVILLE FARMERS MARKET!
