Hey Hey Local Foodies,

Let the glorious flavors of midwestern SUMMER
save your oh so hungry SOUL!!

The BADSEED Farmers Market can help you out this "first" Friday from 4:30 - 9 PM with organically grown goodies from our gregarious gang of urban growers. This food is grown in your very own KC stomping grounds!!! Talk about reducing the miles from seed to plate, huh! Food less traveled is fresher and it TASTES BETTER.
