On almost any day of the week during the harvest seasons, area Farmers Markets create local food destinations for community regulars and out-of-town visitors. The range of market size, location, and vendors means anyone can find the market that is best for them.
Markets offer shoppers a venue to buy high-quality meats and eggs, artisan foods and drinks, and oh-so-many fresh fruits and vegetables. With special Kaw Valley treats like wine, flowers, or lavender, the bounty of our farmers' markets means each trip can be a new experience of discovery.
Everyone can find the farmers' market right for their lifestyle, budget, and food preferences. After that, it’s a simple recipe: Shop. Eat. Repeat.
