Waco Downtown Farmers Market

Waco Downtown Farmers Market


Outdoor Markets


The Waco Downtown Farmers Market originally launched in 2011, tucked among live oaks along the Brazos River in a Waco before the Stadium and the Silos. The Market continued to operate year-round along the river for the next six years, growing from 14 vendors to over 40 vendors each Saturday and adding weekly musicians and seasonal Handmade Markets into the mix. In 2017, the Market relocated to its current location in the Courthouse parking lot due to riverside construction. Over the next two years, the Market focused on increasing nutrition incentive programs by adding Double Up Food Bucks and the WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program, increasing the purchasing power of customers utilizing food benefits while benefiting local agricultural producers. In 2021, the Market celebrated its 10th year with its strongest vendor sales to date, over $1.5 million in sales, while tripling participation in nutrition incentive programs, and hosting up to 80 vendors on special event weekends. In 2023, the WDFM expanded to a 2nd location on Wednesday evenings at the Bridge Street Plaza (200 E. Bridge Street). The Bridge Street Farmers Market operates Wednesdays from 5-8pm.
