The Westport Plaza Farmer's Market debuts today just four blocks South of the previous location of the market formerly known as the 39th Street Community Market.
The new market at the northwest corner of Westport Road and Wyoming Street will run Wednesdays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. through October 6.
The vendors -- many of which were regulars at the 39th Street market -- will have salad mixes, radishes, carrots, jams, breads, oyster mushrooms, grass-fed beef and free-range eggs.
The Wells Family Farms out of King City, Missouri, will be selling organic beef -- we're fans of the farm's skirt steak, which is inexpensive and holds a marinade really well.
Yum Tum sells jams and jellies, marmalade and relish made from local produce, as well as non-dairy cheese (it's almond or cashew based). Yum Tum's apple butter beats syrup on waffles and goes well with roasted pork.
Miller's Honey Farm, based out of Independence, Missouri, is also a regular vendor with honey in bear-shaped squeeze bottles along with beeswax and candles.
For those looking to get started on their garden, the market will have starter herbs and plants this week as well.
