August Events at the Emporia Farmers Market

Celebrate National Farmers Market Week with the Emporia Farmers Market

Take a look at the food on your table. Do you know where it comes from? Can you picture the place where it grew? Do you know the gardener who planted it, watered it, watched it grow with tender loving care and then finally picked it when it was just perfect for eating?

The Emporia Farmers Market would like to invite you to celebrate National Farmers Market Week, August 7-13, with us. Shop the market and add some local produce to your table. Get to know your farmer; get to know your food.

Special Events at the Farmers Market in August include;

Monday, August 1, 5pm
A bonus market will take place at the Lyon County Fair. This extra opportunity to shop the market will take place at the north end of the fairgrounds.

Wednesday, August 3
