Overland Park seeks proposals to develop downtown farmers’ market site — here’s how you can give input

The city of Overland Park on Friday issued a call for requests for proposals for developing the site of the Farmers' Market pavilion downtown, above. The city will also host a public input session on Sept. 28. The pavilion has stood just east of the clock tower for 30 years, and there are concerns it can no longer accommodate the market, which has grown in recent years. File photo.

For 30 years, the Overland Park Farmers’ Market pavilion has stood downtown, just east of the iconic clock tower.

What the future of the site will be could depend greatly on what the city hears in the next few months as it kicks off the process to improve and expand the farmers’ market and, potentially, make the area around the aging pavilion into something more.
