The City Market Farmers Market is up and running to provide access to fresh, healthy food in Kansas City.
The Farmers Market is currently open on the following dates and times:
- Saturdays: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Sundays: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The City Market Farmers Market will open for Wednesday hours later this year as more locally-grown produce comes into season. At this time, vendors are limited to the sale of food-related products (produce, meats, baked goods and prepared foods), gardening plants, herbs, annuals and perennials.
As you’re shopping, you’ll want to be mindful of keeping an appropriate distance and not gathering together at booths or other places nearby. Vendors are wearing masks when helping customers.
SNAP/EBT and Double Up Bucks Matching
EBT/SNAP benefits are available all year long at the City Market Farmers Market. EBT/SNAP benefits can be used for prepared foods, like a packaged cheese spread or a jar of pickles, but EBT/SNAP benefits cannot be used for hot, ready-to-eat foods such as a burger and fries or non-food items.
Many farmers market vendors accept the SNAP tokens and will have a sign posted at their booth so they’re easy to spot. To get SNAP tokens visit the Farmers Market Management Office during market hours to use your EBT/SNAP debit card to get your desired amount of $1 SNAP tokens to shop participating vendors.
The Double Up Food Bucks matching program begins May 16. With Double Up Food Bucks tokens, shoppers can extend their EBT/SNAP purchases by matching up to $15 of their EBT/SNAP benefits per day; it’s a dollar for dollar match in Double Up Bucks tokens that may only be spent on fresh fruits and veggies which can translate to $15 extra dollars to spend on farmers market produce per day.
