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.
