Empire Market to Host Market Egg Hunt on March 30

(Joplin, MO)Joplin Empire Market is pleased to announce the return of their Market Egg Hunt, to be held on Saturday, March 30, 2024. It will be held during normal Market hours from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at 931 E. 4th Street.

Throughout the market day, kids and adults alike can visit the market halls and hunt for eggs containing candy, stickers, and other goodies. A few rare golden eggs will contain $5 tokens that can be used at any market vendor’s booth. There will also be coloring pages for children and some may catch a glimpse of a real life bunny as Willow the Bunny will be attendance. A spring-themed photo booth will be available for self-guided photos. This event is free to participate in. Eggs will be restocked for the afternoon.

The Empire Market is Joplin’s only four-season market. Come for the themed event, but stay for the farm-fresh produce, eggs, pastured meat, honey, baked goods, prepared food like fresh spring rolls and mocktails, and handcrafted artisan goods. Everything sold at the Market is grown or made by the vendors themselves. You can’t get more fresh or local than the Empire Market!
