The Ivanhoe Farmers' Market is a small neighborhood market that was created to serve a need in a community that was without access to fresh fruits, vegetables and other healthy food options.
The seasonal market is mostly supplied by neighborhood farmers and food entrepreneurs who are trained under the Grown in Ivanhoe Program. This program helps develop urban farm startups by offering technical assistance and resources to beginning farmers and gardeners.
The Ivanhoe Farmers' market is also considered a positive alternative for the regional residents to use as a fun, safe and educational place to enjoy a Saturday morning. We accept EBT as well as double food stamps to allow more people to access healthy food.
The Ivanhoe Farmers' Market has a variety of products that change with the season. Our market begins in June and during the first month of the season our vendors have kale, collard, chard, lettuce mix, arugula, micro mix, radish, turnip, beets, carrots, spring onion, and herbs.
We have poultry and eggs that are free range and produced locally. We also offer baked goods, jams, jellies and artisan soaps.
As the season turns to summer we offer tomatoes, green peppers, potatoes, garlic, onion, cucumber, squash and okra. During different times of the season we have local entrepreneurs who are beginning to learn how to sell their products and these residents could have anything from clothing to jewelry. We also support other social service providers and allow for different groups to set up booths to promote their services to our community.
The Ivanhoe Farmers' Market is located at 3700 Woodland Ave, Kansas City.
