NORMAN — The Norman Farm Market has opened for its 33rd season at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 615 E Robinson St. Market hours are 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays and Wednesdays through Oct. 30.
In the opening weeks of the market, shoppers can expect asparagus, greens, lettuce, radishes, spinach, hothouse tomatoes, herbs, vegetable plants, flowers and bedding plants and specialty items such as honey, jellies, spices, dog treats and candy.
The market opened in 1980 as a way to provide local growers an outlet for their agricultural products and a place for consumers to find homegrown products.
The market always offers fresh produce but includes a variety of booths offering specialty goods. Live entertainment, gardening tips and demonstrations are on tap most market days.
In addition to shopping, visitors can tour the Cleveland County Master Gardeners Demonstration and Teaching Garden in the southwest corner of the fairgrounds.
The Cleveland County Extension Service office is accepting registrations for the 2013 Master Gardener program. Space is limited. Cost is $100 per person, which includes supplies. Classes begin Aug. 29.
