(Kansas City, MO) – City Market’s year-round Farmers Market expands its weekend operations to Sundays
beginning March 5. Beginning this weekend, the Farmers Market is open Saturdays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and
Sundays, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. NEW THIS SPRING: Look for our Farmers Market Guest Services booth in the
southeast corner of City Market Square. This walkup window serves as the business office for customers
needing assistance as well as shoppers participating in the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program (SNAP).*

Soon we’ll be bursting with all the delights that come with the season: bouquets of locally grown tulips,
ruffled rows of greens, bunches of root veggies, mounds of herbs, and the selection keeps expanding every
weekend throughout the growing season. Once delicate produce and flowers are safe from exposure to cold
outdoor temperatures, the glass doors will be raised, and the market will once again be open air. In the
meantime, vendors are at market every weekend, and customers can shop comfortably in our enclosed,
lightly heated pavilions and walkways.

More than 100 returning and new vendors are contracted for 2023. You can expect familiar favorites like
Norm’s Gourmet Snacks (pork rinds), McFarland’s Plants and Vegetables, Sweet Delights Bakery, and
Lavender Hill Farm to name a few. New vendors will include KC Peniel Garden (seasonal fresh produce) ,
veteran-owned Ranger Farms Mushrooms, Beky Food (Venezuelan street food), and Whispering Wings
butterfly artwork. Additional vendors will likely join throughout the season as Farmers Market Manager
Paula Stocker continues to curate the offering. In addition to vendors who sell fresh produce, prepared
foods, and crafts, the Farmers Market will also include a new rotation of artists along Walnut Street on
Sundays beginning in April. City Market’s website features a vendor search function and interactive map
showing which vendors will be at the market as they confirm.

Beginning May 3, our new WEDNESDAY FLOWER MARKET will provide a convenient opportunity to load
up on bedding plants, shrubs, vegetable starts, and more for outdoor landscaping and gardening. The
Wednesday Flower Market will be held weekly 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. in May.

Farmers Market visitors can also look forward to sampling and purchasing local wines and spirits from May
through October. Participating wine producers and distilleries will be announced as the schedule is
confirmed. (Samplers and purchasers must be at least 21 years of age with a valid ID.)

*Many Farmers Market vendors accept SNAP tokens which can be used to purchase produce and prepared packaged
foods. SNAP tokens can be purchased at Guest Services for $1 each with a SNAP/EBT debit card. Double Up Food Bucks
(DUFB) tokens are also available at Guest Services at no charge and extend SNAP benefits up to $25 as a dollar-for-dollar match. That translates to up to an extra $25 dollars to spend on fresh fruits and veggies from Farmers Market
vendors per day.
