Ever since social distancing became the norm, The Overland Park Farmers' Market has been working hard with the city to find a way to provide our community with its beloved ritual. It's no wonder the market has been named "The Best Farmers' Market in Kansas" by both Cooking Light and Tripping, and has become the heart of the community for over 35 years.
This year, the Market will live at the Matt Ross Community Center parking lot in Downtown Overland Park to allow for safely spaced stalls in an open-air format and an expanded number of vendors. You can order in advance from vendors or just walk-up. Paying digitally is encouraged, and masks or face coverings are required where guests may be gathered and are unable to maintain six feet of distance. For more information, including where to park and how to access the list of vendors and buyer's guide, visit the city's website dedicated to the Farmers' Market.
From seasonal and unique produce sold by local farmers, and fresh baked goods, to soaps, flowers, sausages, tacos and other hot foods, you can shop till you drop from local vendors. The Farmers’ Market usually offers visitors live music, interactive art, cooking demonstrations, and giveaways, and while this will not be available in this current format, we are so looking forward to getting back to it when it is safe again.
It is an easy way for families to connect with the passionate and hard-working individuals and small business owners who make-up the lively community and learn their stories as well as the stories behind their products. Head to the OP Farmers' Market Instagram account to learn about the vendors you will meet.
All vendors accept exact change cash, or tokens are available for purchase, but digital payment is encouraged. The 2021 Farmers' Market is operating Saturday mornings from 7:30 am - 1:00 pm beginning April 17 through September 25 and 8:00 am - 12:00 pm October 2 - November 20. Wednesdays run from June 2- September 29 from 7:30 am - 1:00 pm.
