Last Month of Outdoor Markets

Fall is here which marks the last month of outdoor markets.  Take advantage of the cooler weather; it's perfect for market shopping!  Find us at the 7th & Merchant parking lot on Wednesdays, 5-6:30pm, and Saturdays, 8-10am, through October 29. We still have a great selection of locally grown, farm-fresh produce including tomatoes, squash, apples, onions, eggplant, peppers and potatoes.

2016 Winter Market season will kick-off Saturday, November 5.  Thanks to our new sponsor, Waters True Value, for hosting us inside their store at 2727 W Hwy 50.  Winter markets run the first and third Saturdays of the month, November-April, from 10:00am-12:00pm.  Expect to find a great variety of greens, apples, honey, cider, squash, cabbage, radishes, and an abundance of freshly baked pies, cinnamon rolls, breads, cookies, as well as handmade items, arts and crafts.

Fresh. Local. Delicious.

Sun ripened tomatoes picked at their peak of freshness, crisp, sweet apples grown just outside of town, and fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon rolls are just a few of the items you can find at the Emporia Farmers Market.  Besides our great selection, our prices, on average, are lower than grocery store prices with three times as much of sales returned to the local economy than chain competitors.  Shop local, eat local.

Find us in the parking lot of 7th & Merchant through the end of October.  Stay tuned for updates on our 2016 Winter Market location.
