When we choose to support local growers, we have more opportunities to enjoy fresh, flavorful produce that’s full of nutrients. However, we need to pay attention to seasonality—some of our favorite fruits and veggies are not available locally year-round, so it’s important to understand what to expect to be able to buy from your local farmer.
Thankfully, the Midwest has some of the most fertile soil in the entire country, which means we get to enjoy a variety of locally grown foods to satisfy our inner foodie. The Overland Park Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday morning all summer long, giving you access to some of the region’s finest produce.
The Overland Park Farmers’ Market Guide is your resource for understanding what to buy and when. The full guide is available at MyHealthKC.com, your resource for living well in Kansas City. Backed by the experts at AdventHealth Shawnee Mission, MyHealthKC.com helps you explore local recipes, guides, wellness events and more to support your daily health journey.
