Farmers markets are known for their fresh produce, delectable baked goods, and handmade crafts.

Those nearby include:

Overland Park Farmers Market 

Named “Best Farmers Market in Kansas” by both Cooking Light and Tripping, this market has welcomed shoppers for more than forty years. It features more than eighty quality vendors who sell an array of goods, and they’re required to label each one to show its origin. The market is open on Wednesdays through September and Saturdays through mid-November, and it also offers interactive art projects, cooking demonstrations, and live music.

Brookside Farmers Market

Open Saturdays through November, the Brookside Farmers Market is home to local growers and producers who provide organic food. The vendors travel less than one hundred miles to the market, and items include farm-fresh vegetables, fresh bread, and eggs from free-range chickens. Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome to explore the market with their owners.

Merriam Farmers Market 

Nestled in nearby Merriam, this farmers market is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This year, it offers thirty-six vendors who enjoy chatting with customers and sell products such as honey, flower arrangements, and baked goods. Throughout the season, there are fun events for all ages such as a seed-spitting contest and Bakery Treats and Bike Trails where riders enjoy delicious treats as they make their way along the trail.
