Activities and Events at the Year Anniversary!

The Waco Downtown Farmers Market is celebrating our one year anniversary! Join us for all sorts of fun and games – including face painting, a whole line-up of local Waco music, petting zoo, farm & craft demonstrations, wine and beer sampling, and more!! KWBU (Waco’s own NPR station) will also be tabling – providing lots of great NPR swag – and recording interviews with market folks.

And it’s the weekend before Thanksgiving – so grab all your feasting ingredients!
