Established in 1976, the Lawrence Farmers’ Market prides itself on the quality of our vendors and the products they sell at market. The LFM is a producer-only market which means all of the products available were grown, raised, made, and crafted by the individual in the booth. This encourages connection between consumer and producer, allowing the customer to feel comfortable asking how an item was made or grown knowing they will receive a knowledgeable answer. All of our vendors are located within 50 miles of Lawrence; shopping at the Lawrence Farmers’ Market reduces the carbon footprint of food production and supports the local economy.
The Holiday Market is always the 2nd Saturday of December. 2021 & 2022 had Outdoor Holiday Farmers Markets at the Douglas County Fairgrounds’ Open Pavilion – previously this event was held inside at The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. The Holiday Market Vendor Application will be released in the Summer of 2023. Vendors must participate in at least six regular-market season markets (Tuesday or Saturday) to be eligible to be a vendor at the Holiday Market.
