Wichita’s Old Town Farm and Art Market reopens for the 2021 season on April 3.
The Old Town Farmers Market has been a staple of the weekend scene in Wichita since 1991. (It’s been on our list of the Top Free Things to Do in Wichita right from the start.)
Although last year necessitated some changes, and we don’t fully know what to expect for 2021, the Old Town Farmers Market is known for many local food, arts, and handmade vendors as well as live performers (busking is encouraged), activities for kids, and generally being an entertaining way to spend your Saturday morning.
The market has ample room for its vendors to spread out. Last year it stretched from its traditional location in the Farm & Art Plaza all the way down Rock Island to 2nd Street.
Market hours are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You can see on the Wichita Farm and Art Market website some of the measures they will be taking to keep customers and vendors safe.
You can use their Meet the Market page ahead of time to connect with your favorite vendors. You may be able to buy online and establish a pickup time and location to minimize contact.

The Kansas Grown Farmers Market at 21st and Ridge opened February 27 with spring opening dates planned for its Derby and Union Station locations.
