TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas Avenue Market took place today as a community effort to revitalize downtown Topeka.

A variety of vendors were able to bring their goods outdoors this time.

Arts, crafts, jewelry, home decor, kitchen items and much more lined the the 700 and 800 blocks of Kansas Avenue today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The market is held to let Topekans know there really is a lot going on in their city.

"The downtown events [are] trying to open up downtown again, get people down here on the weekends. There's a lot of great shops, there's good food," Mary Kay consultant Laura Smith said.

"People need to know there are other people here even on the weekend."

The Kansas Avenue Market is held downtown every second Saturday of the month. It was rescheduled for today because of severe weather conditions last week.
