Let’s get fresh
Beautiful blooms aren’t the only things that pop up when the temperatures rise; farmers’ markets are also emerging all over town, and we can’t wait to spend sunny weekend mornings hunting for the best fresh fruits, veggies other local goodies.
Stop by the City Market, open rain or shine every weekend, to pick up in-season items like green onions, peas, spinach and asparagus, or head to the Overland Park Farmers’ Market on Saturdays beginning April 12, where you can learn tricks of the culinary trade at cooking classes and shop to the sound of live music. Then on May 21st, the farmers’ market opens every Wednesday for the rest of the season too!
For delicious meats, eggs from free-range chickens and artisan and farmstead cheeses (not to mention the famous Brookside breakfast burritos), pay a visit to the Brookside Farmers’ Market on Saturdays starting April 19. Groceries have never tasted so good.
