What's Fresh?

   Food grown and made right here in the KC area is what you'll always find at the Westport Plaza Farmers' Market.  It feels good to know that you can buy goods produced by the kind people you see at the market.  If you have questions about how your produce, meat, plants or baked goods are treated on their way to you, simply ask the vendor.  They are also great sources of information about how to cook or care for your purchases once you get them home.  Take a gander at the freshest food in midtown KC...

Chinese Noodle Beans
Fresh Cut Herbs
Breads Made from Local Flour

Honey Peach Pie
Fresh Flowers

Fruit Trees
Fresh Pickles
Jams and Jellies
Fresh Roasted Coffee Beans
Iced Coffee

   It's always a good time at the market, especially when you're there.  See you this Wednesday, July 20th from 4:30 until 7:30 pm at the intersection of Westport Road and Wyoming Street in KC, MO .
