“The mission of the Lawrence Farmers Market is to provide children and adults in the Lawrence, KS area, with locally grown foods and farm products. This will be accomplished by improving access to local, healthy, affordable food through a direct farm-to-consumer marketing venue that will serve diverse populations, including those of low income.”
As mentioned in our mission statement, LFM strives to be affordable and welcoming to people and families from all walks of life. Because of our direct to consumer business model we are able to provide goods at the price they truly cost to produce. This includes an understanding that those who produce our food deserve to be paid a living wage for their labor.
We are a proud participant in the Double Up Food Bucks program which enables individuals and families receiving SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) to double their spending power at Market. We also have several vendors who accept Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers, allowing seniors to purchase fresh fruit, vegetables, and honey.
