The Van Buren Farmers Market was established in 2008. Since that time we have had several locations around the town. The City of Van Buren has built a brand new facility and plans to be completed in the Spring of 2017. This new facility is located in Veterans Park and effectively joins together the market and The Old Town Merchants Association.
The Van Buren Farmers Market will bring in all kinds of produce within a 50 mile radius of Van Buren. We strive to bring in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, eggs, and jams & jellies.
Local artisans will also be on display every market day. Handcrafted jewelry, soap, wood carvings, and leather working will a few of the many wonderful talents displayed at the Van Buren Farmers Market.
While the Veterans Park is under construction we will be located in the Van Buren public library parking lot ( 1409 Main St). Our hours for the time being will be 7AM-12PM on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting the first weekend in April. After construction on the park is finished we will be open 7AM-2PM Wednesdays and Saturdays and 4PM-8PM on Thursdays evenings.
