Special thanks to our amazing sponsors for contributing to this community event
We are excited about our upcoming markets and would love to have you join us. The Celina Friday Night Market is proud to support a wide variety of local farmers, artisans, crafters, ranchers, vineyards, and many more. Our vendors are the heart and soul of our market, and each vendor is carefully evaluated based upon whether their products are handmade, homemade, and/or homegrown.
The mission of Friday Night Market is to provide locally grown, fresh, and high-quality produced products while giving local farmers, producers, and artisans an economic outlet within Celina. The market will also promote foot traffic to the Historic Downtown Square as a Friday night destination, giving local merchants opportunities to strengthen their businesses and preserve the connection between producer, consumer, and community.
It is our vision to bring a Farmers Market to Celina called Friday Night Market on the Square. Our aim in holding the market on a Friday night is to create a destination spot in our historic downtown square where the community, local farmers, producers, and artisans can come together. We envision a strong presence of quality local farmers, producers, and artisans with diverse offerings. We’d like to see the Market offer fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables raised by local farmers as well as specialties like bread, honey, jams, herbs, and handmade items. We also envision support from local businesses and musicians.
Celina’s Friday Night Market was founded in 2014 by Celina Ladies & Friends. Michelle Baggett initiated the concept of Celina hosting a community farmers market. “My dream is that we can provide residents with opportunities to purchase locally grown produce and handmade products from local artisans. Farmers can educate consumers on the health benefits of buying fresh and nutritious ingredients and offer delicious and hopefully different ways to prepare these foods.”
In Fall 2013, Celina Ladies & Friends President, Rachel Baty, began extensive research into the action steps necessary to bring a farmers market to the community. With a small group of dedicated volunteers and hundreds of volunteer hours developing and implementing plans, the dream became a reality on June 6, 2014. We started with 12 vendors and have quickly continued to grow since.
