The KCK Farmers’ Market operates three weekly farmers’ markets from June to October in Wyandotte County and Kansas City. Each farmers’ market is comprised of producers and growers that are based in Wyandotte County.   The markets are co-located at community centers like schools and religious institutions.  KCK Farmers’ Market received a grant from the Kansas Healthy Food Initiative for $5,000 to facilitate the strategic development of business and marketing plans and the purchase of equipment in 2018. The market projects a 10 percent increase in sales from these improvements.
