Looking for fresh? Try your local Farmers' Market


It's that time of year again!  A sign that spring and summer are sure to come (I say this only because the weather has been so cold, windy, and wet lately)!

If you haven't ever been to a farmers' market before, get out early one weekend and see what they are all about.  You'll be surrounded by fresh veggies, flowers, and sometimes even handmade crafts and entertainment.  Most open in May, but the Overland Park Farmers' Market started last weekend and the Brookside one starts this Saturday.

Below are some locations of Farmers' Markets in the KC area, complete with dates and times.  Which one is your favorite?
