If you’re looking to shop local and find a variety of fresh foods and homemade goods, the Kansas City, Kan. farmers markets are a good one-stop-shop.
Two long-running organizations, the KCK Farmers' Market and the Rosedale Farmers Market, combined in 2020 to better serve their customers in bringing healthy and affordable food to our residents and visitors. All of these markets take Debit, Credit, EBT/SNAP, and Cash. Also, EBT/SNAP users can double their money at the market using Double Up Food Bucks!
The KCK Farmers Market operates from May to October three times per week in two locations in Kansas City, Kan. Wednesdays and Saturdays you can find the downtown farmers market set up in the parking lot of our local Co-op, The Merc, on Minnesota Avenue starting at 8 a.m. until 1 pm or sell out. The Rosedale Market in south Kansas City, Kan. opens at 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Rosedale neighborhood at 4020 Rainbow Blvd.
The KC Farm School offers a pay-what-you’re-able farmers market every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.. If you’re not able to make it to the in-person market, they have a digital market where you can pre-order for curbside pick-up. KC Farm School offers a variety of community workshops, on-farm field trips, job skills training, agriculture apprenticeships, and even a summer immersive farm camp experience for youth ages 9 -14. The community workshops are offered year-round and include in-person events, garden tours, guest speakers, and cooking classes.
Every Saturday from May through September, you can shop, browse and taste locally made products at La Placita Market. Held at Bethany Park, this business incubator provides a venue for community members to explore entrepreneurship to test new business ideas, host pop-ups and commercialize products without a major up-front investment.
You’re sure to find something healthy and delicious at one of our many farmer's markets.
