Fresh Fruits & Vegetables
Under Our Grand Oak
Ed Lester Farms is an outdoor farmer’s market located right on 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.

Friday, July 29th was our 2022 season closer here on the farm. It’s been another great year, but wow it’s been a hot one.
The Lester families would like to thank all our long time customers who have supported us so well in past years. If you are a newer customer or perhaps you just found us this season, we especially want to thank you for your business.
As you can imagine, it takes much hard work, dedication and knowledge to plant, grow and harvest this great bounty we offer each season for you and your family to enjoy. We are blessed with is the hardest working staff on any farm, anywhere, period. Thanks guys (and gals)!
So, we will all take a break, pick some cotton this fall and prepare for the 2023 produce season. We hope to see you all again here on the farm next May.
