About the Market

The Atchison Farmers’ Market. founded in 1998, will celebrate its 24th Year this season!  We provide a venue for growers from Atchison and surrounding counties to provide fresh, locally produced vegetables, fruits, honey. and more at the market.

New to the market this season will be a food truck on Wednesdays and Saturdays and, on limited, pre-announced Saturdays, a wine trolley with Kansas wines.

We plan to open on May 21st with the season extending through Saturday, October 29th for our 2022 season.  Saturday markets run from 8 AM until noon.  Make Atchison Farmers’ Market your Saturday morning ritual and tell all your friends and family: “Meet Me at The Market,” for fresh produce, meats, homemade baked goods, jams, jellies, salsas, dog treats, fresh flowers, and bedding plants.

For your mid-week needs, several vendors will be present for the Wednesday market from 2:30PM to 5:30PM.

In addition, there will be a pre-market day at the market pavilion for early produce on Saturday, March 12, from 10 a.m. until noon.

Throughout the season Atchison Farmers’ Market is planning a variety of entertainment including local cooks demonstrating Market-to-Kitchen dishes, musicians, and fundraisers sponsored by local non-profit organizations.

Although we still want to maintain caution, we hope the worst of the COVID pandemic is almost over.  We understand that we have some customers who still feel more comfortable maintaining distance and wearing masks.  Some of the vendor stands will have hand sanitizer available.

The Market participates in the Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons.  Credit and debit cards are welcome.  Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) card users are encouraged to use their cards to double their buying power under a grant, “Double-Up” program.  The Market Manager has a card reader for SNAP transactions only.

See you at the Market!

  1. This seems like a good place to put your market season and hours 🙂 I am adding your market to our website, and I’ll just use the season/hours information from the USDA Farmers’ Market Directory….but maybe you want to add it here for future visitors? Thank you for all you do to help feed Atchison!

    1. Jason, my name is Doug Hall and own Hall n honey. I have 50 hives that are located in Dekalb, Wallace, Faucet, St Joe. The honey is right out of our hives. We extract right off the frames. We do not heat nor strain our honey so you get the health benefits from the enzymes and the pollen from the local areas. We do have some honey that has the comb in it and we also sell honeycomb. Feel free to stop by the farmers market and sample some of our honey and enjoy many other products that our great vendors sell
