The Emporia Farmers Market is now open twice each week; Wednesdays starting at 5:00pm and Saturdays starting at 8:00am.
This week, prepare for the Murphy’s Menu Coffee Cake Cookoff which will take place on Saturday, June 14. Entries should be delivered to the market kiosk between 7:45 and 7:55am. Bring your coffee cake entry, a copy of your recipe, and get your photo taken by Regina Murphy of the Emporia Gazette. When the market bell rings at 8:00am, shoppers will be invited to taste and vote for their favorite entry. The winner will receive a culinary goodie bag, courtesy of the Emporia Gazette, and will be featured in a future issue.
The Emporia Farmers Market welcomes new vendors year round. Items sold at the market must be grown, baked, or otherwise crafted by the vendor. Interested parties should contact Tracy Simmons, Market Manager, at 620-343-655 or emporiaFM@gmail.com.
