Farmers Markets in Wichita and surrounding communities abound with locally grown fresh food, plants, honey, handmade items, and more.
Some markets offer kids activities and live entertainment; all offer a great opportunity to meet your neighbors, learn more about local produce, and share in the fun of discovering things produced right here in our own state by talented Kansans!
Here I’ve compiled all the local Wichita-area Farmers Markets I know of so you can have them all in one place. (And it seems to be growing with new farmers markets every year!)
I’ve divided them up by day of the week, so as you scroll you’ll see Farmers Markets on Saturdays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
A few markets can be difficult to get information about so if you know something I don’t, please do share. I’ll update my list so that readers will know about all the wonderful local farmers markets available in our area!
