August 2 through 8 is recognized as National Farmers Market Week, and the Downtown Killeen Farmers Market will mark the occasion Tuesday. Mayor Jose Segarra will present a proclamation at 4 p.m. There will also be entertainment and a drawing.
Downtown Killeen Farmers Market is open Tuesdays from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Santa Fe Plaza parking lot between Gray Street and 8th Street.
Local farmers, bakers and specialty product makers sell their goods like fruits and vegetables, eggs, pastries, honey, spices, sauces and even dog treats. About 20 vendors participate each week.
