Sweet summertime is upon us, which means longer days and hopefully some much deserved downtime. Luckily, Broken Arrow is the perfect place for summer family fun.
The first stop on your calendar should be downtown Broken Arrow, better known as the Rose District. Lined with historical buildings, you can find over 70 local shops ranging from apparel and antiques, to flowers and gifts. Check out some of the Rose District's newest landmarks, such as In the Raw Sushi or Andolini's Pizza, and visit longstanding businesses such as Chocolate Designs by Nouveau.
Also located within the Rose District is the state's second largest Farmers Market, which takes place every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. Whether it's crafting at Kids Corner, listening to local bands starting at 10 a.m., or indulging in some fresh cinnamon rolls, the Farmers Market is a place you'll find yourself craving to go back to each Saturday.
