OPENING DAY - JOPLIN'S EMPIRE MARKET - HUGE CROWDS


EMPIRE MARKET OPENS TODAY IN JOPLIN - COME EVERY SAT
  • Farmers Market has a roof over its head
  • Local growers & artisans today 10-3

(64801) — Empire Market is a historic structure, built right alongside the railroad tracks on East 4th St. The main building was originally the Joplin Casket Company. But it comes to life today with a long-awaited Farmers Market & Artisan Center.

Empire District Electric donated this former office space to Downtown Joplin Alliance in 2016. Thus the moniker ‘Empire’ as a nod to the generous company which used the building since 1916 and has since renamed themselves Liberty Utilities - Empire District.
