The Lawton Farmers Market will host its Christmas at the Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at its winter market location in the Cameron University Animal Sciences Building on Southwest 38th.

More than 20 local vendors will be on hand with items ranging from fresh or locally grown produce, to locally raised meats, including goat, longhorn, angus, lamb and pork, farm fresh eggs, honey, a wide assortment of baked goods, handmade soap, hand-sewn items, woodworking, plus a variety of local artisans, crafters and food vendors.

Each month a free activity, experiment or project will be provided by Fit Kids for kids to do while visiting the market. There will be a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) emphasis and activities may also promote health and wellness through gardening, art, nutrition, physical activity and mindfulness.
