Best Farmers Market 

Downtown Lawrence Farmers Market

lawrencefarmersmarket.com | 785-331-4445

This Saturday market, featuring a wide variety of regional vendors, takes up the parking lot between Eighth and Ninth streets and New Hampshire and Rhode Island, in the heart of downtown Lawrence. Dating back to 1976, it's the oldest farmers market in Kansas. There's a sense of community here, a warmth and friendliness not often found in the markets around Kansas City, and the quality of the products is distinctly better and more abundant. In other words: It's well worth the drive west. The 90 vendors sell cheese, fresh herbs (we like Le Petit Garden's), honey from local beekeepers, a wide array of baked goods (including those made by the congenial women from the First United Methodist Church) and all manner of other interesting things. Unlike many of the Kansas City outdoor markets, dogs are welcome here. This market operates from the second Saturday in April to the Saturday preceding Thanksgiving.
