Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City: April 2013

Brookside Farmers' Market Opens Saturday!

A sure sign Spring is finally here...the opening of the Brookside Farmers’ Market!  First day of the season this year  is Saturday April 20, 2013; hours are 8am-1pm at 63rd and Wornall Road, behind Border Star School.  (The Waldo Farmers Market will open May 1).

 

Brookside Farmers' MarketThe Brookside Farmers’ Market was started in 2003 and has grown every year.  The vendors are local to the Kansas City area, and all the produce is organic.  You’ll find vegetables, fruit, herbs, plants; grass fed, organic beef; home made products for your body and whole grain breads and baked goods, with some gluten free offerings.  Although we are early in the season, there will be  a variety of lettuces, kale, spinach and snow peas at the market this spring.

 

Farmers and vendors here encourage shoppers to talk about what they are purchasing: where goods are coming from,  how they are grown, the various varieties for sale, cooking tips, etc.  It’s a friendly, comfortable atmosphere and if you live in Brookside--you will probably run into neighbors shopping at the same time!   

 

Special events this year include Chef Demos on the second Saturday of each month and a Home Gardening Festival on May 11.  


More information on vendors can be found at the website.  Remember to bring a bag for your goodies and cash is always appreciated for a faster transaction.  Thank you for supporting Brookside!
