Downing Fruit Farm not only has some delicious fruit, veggies, and award winning cider, but they've also got the beautiful and sweet, Maddie! Here she is holding one of their many gigantic watermelons! For those of you who are new to Downing Fruit Farm, they have been around for generations.

For those of you who know Betsy Torge, you absolutely love her enthusiastic, love-of-life, light-hearted spirit. She brings a smile to your face no matter what. So you can only imagine what she brings to the OCAC Gardeneering Program. The Gardeneering Program gives our children in Oxford a chance to have hands on experience in the garden. Betsy teaches the children the concept of "farm-to-table" and provides an easy understanding of the benefits of growing your own food.

Cultivating Community With Miami Students

With school starting in 10 days, Oxford will once again, be thriving with a new group of enthusiastic young adults. These days, young folks are eager to be involved with the community, educating themselves and others on the positive effects of farmers markets and local co-ops. With each new Miami student that attends our Oxford Farmers Market, they will tell at least 1 friend. The experience they have at the market will surely be very influential in, bringing a sense of togetherness, enlightenment, and cultivate community. Just take Miami student, Leland Joyce, for example.

Shopper Showcase - Fauzia Loves The Market And The Market Loves Fauzia!

Fauzia Loves The Market And The Market Loves Fauzia (640x427).jpg

Fauzia is one of our most loyal shoppers. Here's what she had to say about the Oxford Farmers Market, "I don't come here because of the food but because I feel that everybody loves me! If I didn't feel welcome I could shop somewhere else. The value of the market is that everything is at its highest possible quality! The truth is that there's all sorts of laws dealing with the distribution of food but you can not legislate morality. Everyone here has their morals right!"

We love you Fauzia! We deeply thank you for your support, love, and the positivity you bring to the market.
