Market History & General Information
Established in 1979, the Downtown Farmers Market of Manhattan is one of the oldest markets in the state. It has a rich history of local producers bringing fresh meats, vegetables, breads and baked goods to the Manhattan area each week. You will discover many local crafters bringing handmade
jewelry, soaps, wood-carved items and other art mediums to the market.

The market's hours are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday, from April through October for the
