ENID, Okla. — Fresh produce is available on the north side of town.

The Fruity Rooster, 1902 N. Grand, opened its door in May. Brandi Rogers, owner, said business is going good. The stand is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The stand offers a variety of in-season produce, from potatoes to plums. Rogers also offers “ice-cold” watermelon, chilled for immediate consumption.

Along with produce, the shop sells rooster-themed decorations and art.  

Rogers guarantees all of her products for quality.

“I try everything I buy, and if I won’t eat it, I won’t sell it,” she said.

Rogers runs the Fruity Rooster with her mother, Linda Cantellay, and with the help of her husband, son and daughter. Rogers said she “grew up in this business,” as her father also ran a fruit stand. He died several years ago.

“He always wanted to see me open a fruit stand,” she said.

Rogers has opened a second location at 12th and Garriott and it is open three days a week. The Fruity Rooster is not affiliated with any other produce stands in Enid.
