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.

Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club

Kids Invited to Join the Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club at the Emporia Farmers Market

On Saturday, June 18, kids ages 4 to 13 are invited to the Emporia Farmers Market to join the Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club. The market starts at 8:00am and the activity for children will begin at 8:30am. Kids will have the opportunity to earn Cleve Cook Market Bucks when the participate in the two-bite club, taking two bites of produce fresh from market. There will be a scavenger hunt and kids will get to plant and take home their own honeydew melon.

The Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club is a farmers market-based youth program that seeks to teach children about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation through fun activities. Participants will engage in the full farmers market experience, trying new foods, having conversations with farmers, and buying local produce. Monthly, a fun activity ranging from cooking demonstrations to farmers market scavenger hunts will provide nutrition, food, agriculture, and exercise education. Veggie Power kids are encouraged to try new foods and overcome picky eating to choose healthy food options. Club members are rewarded for taking two bites of the featured fruit or vegetable and will receive Cleve Cook Market Bucks to spend on the foods of their choice at the market.

Activities at the market will be led by Mandy Kern, market vendor and board member, and youth members of the Southern Lyon County FFA, a part of the National FFA Organization whose mission is “making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.” The Southern Lyon County FFA chapter will take the responsibility of planning club events and engaging with youth at the market.

Funds for the project come from the Emporia Lions Club and the Cleve Cook Fund. Cleve Cook was a life-long resident of the Emporia area and his entire career was dedicated to agricultural industry in Kansas. After retirement, Cleve grew a large summer garden and was a regular attendee of the Emporia Farmers Market. Cleve was 8 days short of his 101st birthday when he passed away in 2013.

More information about dates and activities of the Cleve Cook Veggie Power Club can be found at the market website,

Emporia, Kansas--Low-income Kansas seniors may be eligible for a program that provides checks to purchase an array of healthy foods at farmers markets throughout the state.

Saturday, April 30, Market Musician, Matthew Hope

The Emporia Farmers Market is pleased to announce that there will be a special musical guest—Matthew Hope--at the opening market on Saturday. Shoppers are invited to bring a lawn chair to market and enjoy the music!

From Matthew’s website: “Born and raised in the outskirts of Chicago, Matthew absorbed many different musical traditions at a very young age. Music was central to his existence in a world full of sound but without sight. His exceptional sensitivity to the sonic world has given him a unique perception of the nuances of everyday experiences, which show up in his music as familiar vividness. His music is the fusion of alternative sounds with the familiarity of nostalgic folk traditions. His breathy vocals and intricate acoustic guitar work recall a more hopeful Nick Drake or Elliott Smith. 

“With one foot in the dark brooding sounds of the Minneapolis underground and the other obsessed with writing idealistically about life and love, Matthew has created a nostalgic sound that is not easily forgotten. Time and time again fans say that his voice draws them in. As he shifts from dark to light, from bitter to jubilant, from weary to enthusiastic, he seems to effortlessly keep his fans in anticipatory, bittersweet enchantment.” More about Matthew can be found at

Triple Your Green in Food Stamp Dollars at the Indoor Winter Market in March

Did you know that the Emporia Farmers Market accepts food stamps? Did you know that, not only can you shop at the Emporia Farmers Market with food stamps, you can double your grocery dollar? The market has plans to continue the 2-for-1 program for low-income shoppers in 2016, and to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the coming summer season, the next two markets—Saturday, March 5 and Saturday, March 19—will feature 3-for-1 shopping.

The Emporia Farmers Market not only accepts food stamps, we double your shopping dollar! Please see the market manager or a volunteer during market's open hours for information on how to shop with food stamps at the farmers market.

Shoppers will be asked to swipe their benefits card for tokens that can be spent on eligible food items with any market vendor. For every food stamp dollar debited the shopper will receive three dollars in the form of market tokens and market bucks. Shoppers with food assistance benefits should see the market manager when they arrive for more details about the program.

Since 2009, the market has distributed $10,801 to low income shoppers via matching programs. With funds from the Emil Babinger Charitable Trust and the Emporia Community Foundation, the market expects to continue to the matching program throughout 2016. As well, via Babinger in 2015, the market provided $1,275 in additional assistance to low-income seniors. Programs encouraging area families with children to shop at the market are also fully funded and in place for 2016.

If you would like market manager, Tracy Simmons, to speak to your business or community support organization about the benefits of shopping at the Emporia Farmers Market, she is currently scheduling for the months of March and April. Topics include supporting low-income shoppers, including seniors, at the market through dollar-for-dollar matching programs to help put healthier foods on the table, and encouraging youth (families with young children) to make the market a part of their weekly shopping habits. The market is looking for partners in the community to help get the word about these programs to the people who will benefit.

The next Indoor Winter Market takes place on Saturday, March 5, and is open from 10am till noon at 701 Commercial in downtown Emporia. The market will hold its final Indoor Winter Markets of the season on March 19, April 2, and April 16. Saturday markets return to the parking lot at 7th and Merchant in May.
