An old staple in downtown Wichita Falls, the Farmers’ Market received a much-need renovation when the DWFD took it over in 2012. DWFD gave the Farmers’ Market a new life by not only upgrading the aged electrical and plumbing, but by also investing in its “curb appeal” by enhancing the landscape. The 2012 Farmers’ Market Season proved to be a record-breaking year – by bringing over 15,000 people downtown, the farmers experienced terrific sales success. While great strides have been made, this is only a small step on the long path to revitalization.
If you would like to become a vendor at the Farmers’ Market, we charge only a nominal daily fee. Please contact the DWFD office for more information.
