As the oldest farmers’ market in Kansas, established in 1976, the Lawrence Farmers’ Market prides itself on the quality of our vendors and the products they sell at market. 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 fosters a trust 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. Our vendors are all located within 50 miles of Lawrence, cutting down on the carbon footprint of food production and supporting the local economy.
Lawrence Farmers’ Market vendors’ products span a wide range from meat to baked goods, produce to flowers, hand crafted wood cutting boards to hand woven clothing items. At LFM you can find elk, goat, chicken, pork, beef and lamb meats in addition to chicken and duck eggs. If a vegetable or fruit can be grown in Kansas you will find it at the Market during the appropriate season! Beautiful bouquets are also available in the late spring, summer, and fall. LFM hosts many bakers whose confections range from sunflower bread, sourdough, ciabatta, scones, macarons, and quiches. Handmade cutting boards, kitchen utensils, mugs, plates, bowls, gloves, hats, and scarves can all be found at the booths of our talented craftspeople. If you come to market hungry or thirsty, no worries! LFM has several hot foods vendors ranging from sausage biscuits, tamales, crepes, and creme brulee. We also have several vendors selling locally roasted coffee and specialty coffee drinks.
