Greetings!   

 

Please join us as we move indoor to the Emporia Humanitarian Center (215 W. 6th Avenue) for a third season of Indoor Winter Markets. The first will take place on Saturday, November 3rd.

 

Note the start time for the indoor season is 10 AM!

 

We expect cool season greens, farm fresh eggs, baked goods, and a variety of original craft items at the indoor winter markets (more on this below in this newsletter -- please review if you are an artist or crafter).

 

Thank you for your support. It's been a wonderful 30th celebration year for the Emporia Farmers Market.

 

See you at the market!
