The Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market begins the 2021 season on May 8 in its new location at 701 Howard Road.

The Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market has returned for 2021 at a new location.

Starting May 8, 2021, the market will feature local produce, small batch foods and handmade crafts each Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 701 Howard Road in Waxahachie, Texas [listing].

Anita Simpson, downtown development director and heritage preservation officer for the City of Waxahachie, says the new location offers several advantages such as better parking and more room for special events.

Like the old location, the new spot on Howard Road offers an indoor farmers market experience, a rarity among local farmers markets that usually consist of pop-up tents in a parking lot.

“It’s a great thing for for both our vendors and our customers because it gives the vendors that are not going to open a full storefront and opportunity to sell their goods and wares, and it gives our citizens a great place to get locally grown produce and things handcrafted by their neighbors,” Anita says.

The market previously took place across from City Hall at a location on South Rogers Street that will soon be made into a new annex building for the center of the city’s government.

The Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market at 701 Howard Road is an all-indoor market.

Anita says this year market customers can expect to see everything from local produce and cottage foods to handcrafted soaps, hand-sewn crafts and local art. Most of the vendors from the past season have returned, and a few new vendors have been added.

The Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market was started in 2003, and Anita says one produce vendor has been a regular for the whole 18 years its been held.

“He has a huge farm right on the outskirts of Waxahachie. And you can just taste the difference in the produce that has just come out of the ground that week as opposed to something that may have been shipped from who knows where and you don’t know when it was harvested or anything,” Anita says.
