At the Ada Farmers Market, you can take a break from the ordinary grocery shopping experience and spend some quality time exploring what local farmers in the area have to offer!

We think the best part of our market is getting to know the wonderful people who grow the food and products, along with the process of getting food to market.  They all have great stories to share. After a bit, you’ll get to know their first name and some of their favorite ways to fix a meal – because it’s always about the food!  Next thing you know, you’ll be discussing kids, what their family is doing the next weekend and all sorts of interesting stuff. In fact, the more you get to know our vendors, the more you’ll appreciate the rich diversity of  great people we have in our local farming community.

And, while they come to market to make money, it’s even more important for them to hear feedback on their products and how they can best meet the needs of their community with new products.  So strike up a conversation and see what’s new in their backyard.  Share the kinds of things you like to serve your family and any interests you have in special ingredients.  They might just be able to point you in a new culinary direction.
