New Market for Downtown

downtown Hays Dev. CorpDowntown Hays Development Corporation has been working with Downtown Merchants, the City of Hays, K-State Research and Extension and local vendors to start a new outdoor market in our community. The Downtown Hays Market will open this summer in Downtown Hays. The market is scheduled to open on Saturday, June 8th pending produce and vendor availability.

The market will be open regularly on Wednesday’s from 5-8pm and Saturday’s 7:30-11:00am. The location of the market will be in the 10th Street parking lot between Main and Fort Streets. We encourage customers to check out the market on a regular basis, since produce and merchandise will change throughout the growing season.

Are you an experienced farmer’s market vendor and looking for a fresh start? We would love to have you join our market. First time vendors are also welcome! We are looking for growers, craftsmen, bakers, honey producers, artists and musicians to fill 10th street in Downtown and bring a new experience to the community. Items such as fresh produce, cut flowers, live plants, baked goods, honey, jams and handcrafted items, including jewelry, soaps and more are all encouraged!
Not a vendor but looking to be part of a new and exciting community market? Do you like community involvement and interacting with others? We have just the role for you! We are searching for a Market Manager. For more information contact me at We could not be more excited about this development and we are happy to bring something new to the heart of Hays.
