On The Bricks

September 27, 2022

          It’s been a really busy week and feeling my age. Or maybe I’m feeling my weight … whichever it is, I could use a Saturday off! But we have ONE MORE Farmers Market on Sat., Oct. 1. Thank goodness it is going to open at 10 am rather than the normal 8. It’s the market for the folks that have been complaining about not wanting to get up early on Saturday. Or maybe it’s for the vendors that are cold getting all packed up and set up on these cooler mornings. Or maybe it’s so it will be at a time when you can come to the market and the car show. Or maybe it’s for Main Street Guymon Director’s feeling their age. Whatever the reason, we hope you’ll be there!

          Farmers Market is a Main Street Guymon event that is sponsored by Linda Hill Crop Insurance. We like to make it possible for home bakers, gardeners, and crafters to be able to have a time they can sell … at the same time reminding folks that downtown is busy and a good place to be.

          We will have, for the first time, hand woven on a large floor loom rugs and placemats by David and Susan Renno of Sunray, Texas. They make their wares using a variety of materials such as old jeans, fabric, yarn, afghan salvage and more. Might be well worth the trip to go see what they have happening!

          The same day is the TCEC Art Show and Contest where artists have the chance to take home $500 in Main Bucks (that they can use in over 25 Main Street Guymon businesses). The Art Show is part of the Meet Me at the Market events and TCEC does a fabulous job on this show. If you’re a local artist, check out the contest on TCEC’s website.

          There are lots of other places you might want to be coming up.

          Fall Garden Tour is Thur., Sept. 29 from 9 am to 2 pm in Guymon, Optima, and Goodwell. You can tour Helm’s Nursery, Boo’s Pumpkin Patch, Dianna Brown’s garden, and OPSU Tour and Luncheon. Call 580-338-7300 for more information and for tickets.

          Blues, Bacon, and Beer is October 1 in Guymon in the evening. That afternoon is the OPSU Homecoming football game. Broken Rock Ranch has Seth Ward in concert that night, too.

          Pumpkins in the Park, one of the favorite events of the year for kids, is Oct. 3. This event is done by PTCI and TCEC and you can find out more on their websites and facebook pages.

          Oklahoma Panhandle Partners is a group that aids families who have someone going through cancer treatments. They have helped many a family in the Panhandle. You can help them help others by attending their Fall Party on Oct. 6 at Broken Rock Ranch, 6 pm.

          And don’t forget to get your reservations in for the Charcuterie Board Class that Main Street Guymon is putting on Oct. 8 from 6 to 8 pm. The cost is $65 a person and the board and food is provided, you just need to bring your knife and something to drink. Call 580-338-6246 for reservations.

          See you on the bricks!
