Farmers’ Market season is right around the corner! I count down the days til I can sink my teeth into a fresh, local melon, heirloom tomatoes, and ears of sweet, white corn. I also enjoy meeting the good folks that grow the food I feed my family.
I travel citywide to farmers’ markets. My favorites are the City Market, Downtown Overland Park, Downtown Lee’s Summit, and Drumm Farm Market in Independence.
Please leave a comment if I have missed a farmers’ market in the Kansas City metro area.
