Emporia, Kansas, USA

The Emporia Farmers Market is located in downtown Emporia, between 7th and 8th Avenues on Merchant Street. The market opens at 8:00 and usually goes to about 10:30.

The farmers market is fully supportive of the event being held as part of the market that Saturday morning. We usually have 5 or 6 spinners show up, so it’s a very small event, but has been lots of fun for participants as well as observers.
