Staff report

McALESTER — On Saturday, producers man their tables at the McAlester Farmers' Market.

Producers at the market on Choctaw Avenue and Main Street were Gail Cargil, of Haywood, Maryann Cathy, of Indianola, Jimmy Terry, of the Elm Point area in McAlester, Noel Mussyal, of Indianola, Burl Eldridge, of Tannehill, Phillip and Patricia Bradley, both of Indianola, Evett Short, of Krebs, and Roy Earhart, of the Chambers Community in McAlester.

Terry displays a 10-1/4-pound cabbage at his table. He gives credit to his terrain for its success.

He says it was “raised on the side of a mountain. No miracle grow.”

Producers start to set up at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays while produce is season.
