Citizens Bank of Edmond, which has helped customers in Oklahoma for more than 112 years, has always been in touch with their local community. When it comes to helping folks find fresh produce, the bank continues to be forward thinking!
Located right across the street from the local Edmond, Okla., farmers market, Citizens employees have the opportunity to interact with shoppers and vendors. After observing for a bit, new in 2013, the bank is providing reusable grocery bags for farmers market customers to carry their fresh fruits, veggies and other locally made goods. These bags not only remind customers the importance of going local and to “go green,” but also provides an easy way to transport local products home.
Every spring, bank employees are some of the most excited Edmond residents to see the farmers market come back to town!
