Waco Downtown Farmers Market Update.

Greetings, it’s been a few weeks wince we last met to discuss a Downtown Farmers Market and I wanted to share with you that great progress is being made.  A Downtown Farmers Market Board of Directors is being formed and we are working with the city to finalize the details on a location.  We hope to launch the market in early fall.  The two most likely locations include 2nd street in between Franklin and Mary and on University Parks/Brazos River behind the old city fire station.

We are currently in the process of developing a preliminary budget and operating guidelines while working to apply to become a Texas Certified Farmer’s Market in anticipation of our fall start.  Additionally we are working on developing a vendor’s application which we will begin to circulate soon.  If you are interested or know anyone who may be interested in participating as a vendor please feel free to contact me or Terry Vanderpool, so we can add them to the list.


Thank you for your interest, participation, enthusiasm and most importantly your patience as we endeavor to make the Waco Downtown Farmer’s Market a reality.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or thoughts.
