Community Booths at the Market

Community Booth spaces are an important part of the Lawrence Farmers’ Market because they allow organizations to spread their message and have the opportunity to speak directly to the public. Learn more about how to apply for a Community Booth here.

Sustainable Produce Distribution

In partnership with Douglas County Master Gardeners and Just Food, the Lawrence Farmers’ Market vendors donate 3000+ pounds of produce every year. That’s equivalent to over 10,000 servings of fresh produce!

Thanks, Master Gardeners and Just Food for helping us make such a great impact in our community.
