Last month I visited the Lenexa Holiday Farmers Market. Lenexa hosted their Farmers Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays during the summer, Saturdays during the fall, and then the Holiday Farmers Market once in November and once in December. The market takes place on the bottom floor of the parking garage in the Lenexa Civic campus, 17201 W. 87th St. Pkwy. If you’re familiar with the Lenexa City Center Library, the farmers market is in the same parking lot as the drive-through for the library.
The vendors change during the year and some that attend the summer markets may not attend the holiday ones. There are also different items featured during the holiday market vs. summer, with an emphasis on holiday goods. Many of the vendors offer the ability to pre-order items and pick them up at the market, especially for baked goods such as pies and sides that someone might want to serve their family for the holidays.
There is another Lenexa Holiday Farmers Market coming up soon on December 19 from 10 AM – 1 PM. Get there early if you want to have the best selection. Arrive after 11 AM if you want to avoid the crowd. Check the Lenexa Farmers Market calendar for other upcoming Farmers Markets. The holiday farmers market is a great way to find unique gifts for friends and family AND support local businesses.
Some of my favorite items I found at the Lenexa Holiday Farmers Market include:
Salsa Mama’s salsa– made fresh that morning before the market. Their salsa is so good!
Three Bears Bakery & BBQ LLC – Keto & sugar free items such as brownies, cheesecakes, sides and more! Their baked items are gorgeous!
Daniel’s Bar-b-q Sauces LLC – Award winning BBQ sauces and rubs
Hedgewood Farms– grass-fed beef and non-GMO farming
Next to Nature Farm– Raw, pure and natural honey and honey items
Holy-field Vineyard & Winery– raspberry wine was highly recommended by a shopper I met
Jake Creek Pecans– shelled and non-shelled pecans
There’s No Place Like Home Bakery LLC– we tried a Hawaiian pie, which was similar to a calzone (very good!). Ask them about their Cookie Fries!
Madd House Hill– goat milk soaps and lotions
Dip Stick– dip mixes in something that looks like a large straw. You add the mix to a liquid (such as olive oil) and have a fresh dip.
There were also many other organic farming goods, micro greens and baked items. Visit the Lenexa Farmers Market to find fresh goods, have fun, and support local businesses.
