Edmond, Oklahoma

Named as one of America's Top-Rated Smaller Cities in 2008-2009 by Universal Publications in New York, Edmond is filled with as much culture, entertainment and art as it is business, education and industry. With a cost of living that is more than nine percent below the national average, Edmond is home to the famous Oak Tree National, the site of the 67th Senior PGA Championship and the 2014 U.S. Senior Open. There are more than 10 golf courses in the area, but golf is only part of Edmond's recreational activities. Arcadia Lake offers fishing, skiing, camping and 17 miles of hiking trails. Historic Downtown Edmond features diverse shopping, and the Fine Arts Institute sponsors and hosts art shows. Nearby Oklahoma City Zoo is one of the country's largest and best zoos, while Remington Park offers exciting thoroughbred horseracing.

The climate of Edmond is affected mainly by winds from the continental Great Plains, though occasionally moist air comes up from the Gulf Coast. Winters are short and mild. Summers are hot, but the heat is mitigated by low humidity.

Edmond Farmer's Market

Since 1988 the Edmond Farmers Market is one of the premier places in Oklahoma where farmers sell their crops directly to customers. And because it's located downtown, it's the perfect shopping spot for residents, office workers and visitors looking for a taste of Oklahoma at its freshest. Plus, with extras like flower and gardening vendors, and a full calendar of events, there's something to suit every taste at the Edmond Farmers Market.

The Edmond Farmers Market is a registered market with The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry and meets all licensure requirements with the Oklahoma Department of Health.

Adopt-A-Street

Adopt-a-Street programs are administered by Edmond Public Works and Edmond Beautiful for an ongoing, year-round litter pickup from the section line roads and thoroughfares. Edmond Field Services provides bags and disposal of the litter for this volunteer program.

Volunteers from various civic groups, school groups, business clubs, sororities, fraternities and church groups devote their time and effort as "litter patrols" along the roadsides to help keep Edmond clean. Volunteers make a two-year commitment to adopt one mile of roadway for which they collect litter three times each year. One of the yearly collections should be during the statewide collection week, which is usually slated in April.
