Planning Your First Trip to Ed Lester Farms?

FRESH PICKED FRUITS & VEGETABLES UNDER OUR GRAND OAK

Ed Lester Farms is an outdoor farmer’s market located right on the bank of the west bank of the Red River. Under the shade of our stately grand oak you will feel the cool summer breeze as you peruse through our beautiful selection of fresh picked fruits and vegetables. All produce is displayed in “self serve” fashion.

Produce arrives from the fields beginning around 8 am and typically remains in supply until closing time at 5 pm.

Because of our relationship with Mother Nature, our selection of crops changes over the summer season. Cooler season crops such as lettuce and broccoli will give way to warmer season crops like okra, melons, and purple hull peas.

You may want to bring an ice chest to better transport any shelled peas or beans you purchase. But you will not need to bring any other type of containers or baskets.

Need large quantities? No problem. Our staff is happy to help you with all your purchases.

We accept checks, Louisiana Purchase cards and Senior Citizens Nutrition Program Coupons as well as all major credit cards.
