Kansas City is fortunate to have access to a number of Farmers Markets that only accept vegetable and fruit producers who agree to grow using organic methods. These growers avoid the use of conventional fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, and other biocides, and they strive to preserve the health of the living soil.

In addition, the farmers at these markets who produce meat, eggs, and dairy products agree to avoid the use of synthetic growth promotants such as hormones and sub-therapeutic antibiotics, and provide the animals with appropriate, humane living conditions. For additional information about the markets, please contact the market directly with your questions.

There are Farmers Markets all over the city and on nearly every day of the week, but the organically-grown markets are our favorites!
