Thank you for Jack Money's article on the Farmers Public Market at 311 S. Klein Ave, downtown Oklahoma City (News, "To market," Oct. 14, 2009, Oklahoma Gazette). This wonderful place is on the historic register and has a rich history.
Over the years, I have frequented the Farmers Public Market to browse and shop at the charming stores where I would always find one-of-a-kind treasures, many of which are handcrafted by Oklahoma artisans.
Some shops have been in the same location more than 20 years, and are still going strong. Shoppers will find everything from hand-painted furniture to handmade candles to books, art and antiques. Discriminating shoppers will delight in the discovery of items not found anywhere else.
I'm a firm believer in supporting local entities. The Farmers Public Market should be on everyone's "must visit" list. It's right off Interstate 40, easy to get to, with hassle-free parking and shopping.
Again, thanks for the article.
