Closed for the Season. See us in May 2021!
Fresh 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.
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.
Tips For Your Trip
Needing to buy in large quantities?
No problem! Our staff is happy to help
you with all your purchases.
What to Bring
You don’t need to bring a thing. If you will be transporting your fresh veggies for a long distance you may wish to bring an ice chest. We do offer thermal bags which work nicely for our shell peas and other more delicate produce. But your air conditioned car will be just fine for the short haul.
Pay How You Want
We accept checks, Senior Citizens Nutrition
Program Coupons as well as all
major credit cards.
Blog – The Latest News From the Farm
Once again another produce sales season here on the farm has come to a close. The crops have given their last and we now focus our efforts on the upcoming cotton harvest later this fall.
It has been an interesting and challenging season. Farming always is. But as we all struggle with today’s issues, it is our hope that we have provided a little bit of calm and normalcy to the crazy world out there. Our purpose here at the farm really is to make people happy and provide some fresh and tasty things to eat. What a great job we have.
Thanks to our customers who have stood by us all these years and a hardy welcome to all those new customers who just found us this season. We hope to see you all next May when we will begin our 53rd produce season.
Hang in there, wear your mask, wash your hands and all of the hard working staff at Ed Lester Farms will see you next season!
As our crops begin to wrap up for the season, this will be our last sales week here on the farm. Our last day will be Saturday, July 25th.
All this week we should have plenty of tomatoes, peaches, okra, melons, onions, cabbage, bell & hot peppers of all kinds and pinkeye purple hulls. We will also have zipper cream, lady cream and brown crowders. Pinkeyes are available shelled as well. Harvest of yellow squash and sweetcorn continues all week.
Come see us during our last week of the season or give us call for more information.
As always, open 8:00 -5:00.
Our large freestone peaches are now ready and available by the pound or by the peck box. These beauties are picked tree ripe and are so juicy and delicious.
We also now have vine ripe tomatoes by the peck box so you can be ready for the weekend holiday. Sweet watermelons and cantaloupes are in harvest too.
Tuesday will begin a new patch of our yellow & white sweet corn and it’s really pretty.
As the summer continues, come visit us at the farm and see what’s growing.
We will be closed this Saturday for the 4th of July so we can all pop some firecrackers!
