The Kansas State Farmers Market will be held this Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Bosco Plaza in front of the K-State Student Union.

The K-State Farmers Market began in 2016 and has since been held several times a year on the last Wednesday of March, April, September and October. This Wednesday, the market will feature 20 K-State student and faculty vendors selling handmade and homegrown goods.

Jayna Ukrazhenko, fitness and wellness associate for recreational services, said there will be a lot of goods to be checked out and fun to be had at the farmers market. From organic eggs and baked goods to crocheted bracelets, Ukrazhenko said “you name it, and it’ll be there.”

Wednesday’s forecast predicts temperatures in the 70s, and Ukrazhenko said the farmers market is a great time to “get outside and enjoy the talents and creations of others.”

The K-State Farmers Market is open to the Manhattan community and free to attend. In the event of rain, the market will be moved inside to the Union Courtyard.
