Ever since social distancing became the norm, The Overland Park Farmers' Market has been working hard with the city to find a way to still provide our community with its beloved ritual this Season. 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.
The Market opened as an essential food provider this Spring with a drive-thru minimum contact format at the Overland Park Convention Center parking lot, and moved back to Downtown Overland Park July 1. Its new walk-up home for the rest of the season is at the Matt Ross Community Center parking lot where stalls are still able to be appropriately spaced apart for safety. You can order in advance from growers, 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. See more details and parking info here.
From seasonal and unique produce sold by local farmers, and fresh baked goods, to soaps, flowers, sausages 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.
All vendors accept exact change cash, or tokens are available for purchase, but digital payment is encouraged. The 2020 Farmers' Market is operating Saturday mornings from 7:00am - 1:00pm and on Wednesdays from 7:30am - 1:00pm with 7:30am -8:30am reserved for high risk shoppers. Saturdays run through November 21, and Wednesdays through September 30.
