Quapaw Nation Farmers Market

The Quapaw Nation recently received a $40,000 grant from the First Nations Development Institute of Longmont, Colorado.  This award will fund a new farmers market on Route 66 in Quapaw, Oklahoma beginning May 17 from noon until 6:00 p.m. The farmers market and vendor opportunities will be open to all.     

The farmers market will host a variety of local vendors selling produce, honey, crafts, Quapaw-brand products such as meats and coffee, and more as seasonal products become available.

Linda Davis, a resident of Quapaw said, “I see the farmers market as a community asset that will allow not only tribal members, but community members as a whole, to purchase fresh, healthy, and locally-grown foods. As a consumer, I am looking forward to the opening of the farmers market.” The Route 66 location is just blocks from Quapaw Public Schools, O-Gah-Pah Learning Center, Tribal Elder Activity Center, and residential neighborhoods.

Chairman John Berrey added, “Quapaw Nation is invested in increasing food security in our region. A farmers market provides an opportunity to make shopping for wholesome foods an enjoyable experience for the entire family, not to mention the economic and educational benefits to the extended community.”
