Market Philosophy

The Farmers’ Market is an important community resource that provides an opportunity for local farmers to provide fresh, nutritious food to the local community.

It permits consumers to buy directly from local farmers, helps promote new farm and food businesses, and helps promote the economic vitality of Downtown Overland Park.

The City of Overland Park is committed to operating the Farmers’ Market with local producers and farmers as the centerpiece and primary emphasis. The City recognizes, however, that the seasonal nature of local products and other factors justify certain structured opportunities for vendors to supplement homegrown products with non-homegrown products according to the Market’s rules and regulations.
