Capitol Midweek Farmers Market

We are back!

The Capitol Midweek Farmers Market (CMFM) was founded in 2006. The CMFM is an educational market designed to demonstrate farmers market best-practices and to provide physical activity and nutrition information to State and downtown Topeka employees and residents. 

The CMFM is held in Topeka every Wednesday starting the second week of May and ending the second week of October from 7:30 a.m. to noon on the south side of the Kansas State Capitol Building along 10th Avenue.

If you are visiting the market on your bike please join us at the market information table. We are happy to watch your bike while you do your shopping!

When visiting by car, park in any metered parking stall that is open. Hooded meters are reserved for growers and should not be used unless there is a space that does not obstruct our market vendors! Don't forget, if you have a handicap tag metered parking is free!

There is no incorrect way to walk through our market to shop! Approach from Jackson and head west on 10th or come from Harrison and head east. Take a moment and enjoy the view of the Capitol Building and the Fountains of Justice across the street. 

Don't forget our market is a no smoking, tobacco free event!
