A farmers market is a venue at which farmers sell agricultural products and food directly to the general public. Interest in farmers markets is growing across Kansas, with the number of markets increasing more than four-fold in the past 20 years. Consumers get to build relationships directly with the people who grow our foods.
As a coalition, Heartland Healthy Neighborhood recognizes that community design features- like farmers markets, sidewalks, bike lanes and healthy food retail–make it easier to be healthy in Shawnee County and we support our farmers and local farmers markets.
