Overland Park Farmers Market is spread over several parking lots
Overland Park Farmers Market in old downtown Overland Park, Kansas is a fun place to purchase produce, live plants, homemade preserves and fine baked goods. For over 35 years the market was held at the Farmers Market pavilion, but Covid made some adaptations necessary and the market was first moved to the Overland Park Convention Center and finally to the parking lots at the Matt Ross Community Center, about 1,000' south of the old pavilion.
The larger space allows the vendors to be spaced farther from each other and for customers to be much more spread out. Shoppers and vendors are asked to wear masks or face coverings where people are unable to maintain six feet of distance. Only one family or group will be allowed at a booth at a time and shoppers must stay at least six feet away from other shoppers.
While self service is available for non produce items such as meats, cheeses and packaged foods, vendors serve fresh produce. rather than shoppers handling the produce.
Free parking is available at the formerly used pavilion, Edison District parking garage and nearby streets,
