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, Louisiana Purchase
cards, and Senior Citizens Nutrition
Program Coupons, as well as all
major credit cards.
As always, our produce sales season begins in late May. This date, of course, depends on many weather related variables. So, watch this website or sign up for our newsletter and you will be know our opening day. Summer is coming…
New red potatoes are a Spring favorite here on the farm. At present, the potatoes plants are beginning to bloom which mean they also are just beginning to produce little potatoes on the roots of the plants. It won’t be long now!
As you will remember our peach trees decided to take the year off last season so to speak. But, thanks to a really cold winter, this season looks great for the peach crop. Peach season begins in late May and continues through the month of July.
