Event will be a “Night Market’ and showcase live music and fun in Historic Downtown
KILLEEN, Texas (Aug.11, 2023) – The City of Killeen is excited to announce the return of the Farmers Market to Historic Downtown Killeen each Friday, beginning Sept. 22. The Killeen Farmers Market will feature the first-ever “Night Market” and be home to 20 of the best local artisans, craft brewers, local chefs and bakers, and of course fresh local produce.
The Farmers Market will be every Friday from Sept. 22 – Nov. 3 from 6p.m. - 9p.m. Each week will have something unique, from puppuccions as we say goodbye to the dog days of summer, to a pumpkin carving contest this October. The City is happy to announce this during National Farmers Market Week.
“I am excited for the upcoming farmers market season,” Downtown Revitalization Director, Kate Kizito, said. “Our Recreation Services Department has really worked to reimagine this event series as something more than just vendors. This market is different - not only will it be a great place to support local small businesses, but it will be a place to gather with friends and family downtown every week and enjoy great food and live local music.”
Holding the Farmers Market at night will welcome in the fall season with twinkling lights, live music, signature cocktails and fun for everyone- The Famers Market is sure to be a local Friday night favorite.
The Killeen community is asked to support the best Killeen makers, artists, and growers at the Farmers Market.
The City of Killeen’s Recreation Services department and Downtown Killeen Revitalization division have partnered to bring the market back to downtown to live by the National Recreation and Parks Association’s saying-- “Farmers Markets grow community.” The City of Killeen looks forward to not only growing the opportunities we have to come together, but also growing the opportunities that are our locally owned businesses.
