Something new is coming to the Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market.

The Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market was officially started back in 2014. This farmers market sells fresh produce and some local foods that everyone has loved to check out during the summer months.

Its goal and mission are to provide the area with locally-grown products and food and to promote and encourage people to come to downtown Lubbock.

The Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market only serves and focuses on locally-grown produce and farm products from the region, but may also host a limited amount of ready-to-eat and value-added products, as well as craft products, to support local artisans, downtown Lubbock businesses, and food-based entrepreneurs. You can find fruits, veggies, meats, arts, jewelry, crafts and so much more. They also bring out food trucks so attendees can enjoy a great breakfast or lunch.

So what is new for the 2023 season? They are moving locations. For the first time ever the market will be moving to the Downtown Arts District. This is located at 5th Street and Avenue J, which is the courtyard behind the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts at 511 Avenue K.

The market posted to Facebook saying, "This move will provide a more scenic environment and a more enjoyable shopping experience for our market shoppers and vendors. We are excited to be located in the thriving downtown arts district and hope to see all of our loyal shoppers in this new location."

This market kicks off for the season on Saturday, May 27th, 2023.  It will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will happen every Saturday through October 14th, 2023.

You can find their full list of vendors here, or if you want to become a vendor they have an application process here. It will cost you a $50 annual fee to become a “Member Vendor," $20 daily booth fee for “Member Vendors” and $30 daily booth fee for “Day Vendors.” The booth fees must be paid on the day of the event.

You can go to their official Facebook page or their website for more details.
