The Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market is now open year-round

| | ,

The market’s seasonal opening on May 6, 2023 marks the beginning of its new year-round schedule.

A new schedule is in place for the Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market. As the market opens for its seasonal beginning on May 6, 2023, it will remain open each Saturday year-round rather than closing at the end of October.

The Downtown Waxahachie Farmers Market is located at 701 Howard Road in Waxahachie, Texas and will be open from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays throughout the year.

Anita Simpson, director of downtown development for the City of Waxahachie, says the change will help both customers and vendors, especially regarding products that are not affected by seasonal availability.

“The benefit to the vendors is that they will have a place to sell year-round if they opt to do that,” she says. “The benefit for the public is that they will be able to shop their local vendors all year.”

Simpson says that not all the vendors have opted into the year-round schedule and will end the season on October 21, 2023.

The market hosts more than 50 vendors offering everything from farm fresh produce and eggs to arts and crafts, pet treats, coffee, ice cream, canned goods, salsas and ready-to-eat foods. For 2023, a little more than a dozen vendors will be all new.
