There's nothing like the Farmer's Market. Everybody there is kind, intelligent, helpful, and their merchandise is always fresh, healthy, and the best tasting food in all of Lawrence! The home-made soaps, blankets, and other items you can find there are a pleasure to see, smell, touch, and use. There's no place like it.

The market has all local farmers who bring their produce in from their nearby farms. There is a wide selection, and you can talk to the farmers about how they grow the food they're selling. Also, every week there are special events going on - musical performers, a salsa-making contest, tomato sampling, etc.

My husband and I love to support our local farmers. We truly adore and appreciate all of the incredible produce, seasonable fruits, eggs and meat products. Being a vegetarian for more than 20 years, knowing (and meeting) the source of my meals is a satisfying security. We look forward to early Saturday mornings to head to the market and our husky expects the routine each weekend as well. The atmosphere is so inviting and a highlight to kick off the weekend! Thank you Lawrence and all of our awesome local farmers!

The produce at the Downtown Lawrence Farmer's Market is better and often cheaper than what I find at the grocery store. There are items at the market I simply can't get anywhere else (kohlrabi, for example). And I always run into someone I know. The Saturday morning market always starts my weekend off right.

The DLFM is a producer market. I know that what I am buying is grown by the person selling it to me. I know them, they know me. I know that this relationship impacts the choices they make when raising their products. This market and its producer members go the extra mile to create a wonderful community atmosphere.

It is diverse as well as local, so you are apt to see something new on each visit. Plus the greenhouses and small growers supply excellent plant starts. Even better, while shopping you will see everyone you know and some additional people you should know. If that's not enough, the variety of dogs taking their owners around to see the sights is amazing.

The sellers are all true locals. They are friendly and generous about free advice on preparing their produce. Or even on growing your own rather than buying from them. It is such a pleasant atmosphere, even when I don't need anything I go to enjoy the music, the friendly folks, and the beautiful produce.

A local/regional food system is becoming more and more critical with the growing peak oil inflation of agricultural inputs, and the increasing constrictions on agricultural productivity due to climate destabilization. As the oldest farmers' market in Kansas, the Downtown Lawrence Farmers' Market is positioned to respond to these global agricultural crises. And the market vendors have great food!

The Downtown Lawrence Farmers' Market is a great celebration of local foods and local community. The market is the oldest in the state and is a "growers only" market. This means that all the delicious, fresh produce is grown by the farmer you buy from...not so at all markets.

Well managed, great location, friendly-informed-but-not-pushy vendors, and best variety of fresh local produce, flowers, and local meats I have ever encountered at an American farmers' market - and I have been to quite a few. Everything is clearly from local/regional farms - no industrial produce faking it as locally grown. And fresh local food is plentiful, as opposed nic-nacs and crafty items. Great mix of people attending every weekend.

I love this market because all of the vendors are local and you never see people trucking produce in from California with stickers on it.

The Lawrence Farmers Market paints a unique picture of the midwest farmland, complete with seasonal specialties such as asparagus, tomatoes, berries, and corn and a meat-heavy offering of local and organic products. Especially unique is the opportunity to visit many of the farms and pick-your-own produce or see massive bison up close as they graze in an open field. Friendly and familiar faces, a sense of community, and a love and respect for the local land make this market the place to be!

When I visit my parents in Lawrence, I always make the Farmers' Market a priority. I appreciate that the members of the market bring foods from nearby areas, not trucking strawberries from the Salinas Valley. The farmers are always pleasant and interested in sharing facts and stories directly or loosely related to their goods. Also, the members bring music and other forms of entertainment to the market often, adding another enjoyable layer to the atmosphere.

Our market is wonderful! Our toddler loves dancing to the music of local musicians, seeing all the friendly kids and dogs and smiling neighbors, eating fresh fruits and vegetables and breakfast foods....We love all the same things, plus we love knowing where our food comes from and meeting our food producers. Farmers' markets are community! And they hopefully represent not just the past but the future of good food.

Local food is fresh, safe, nutritious, and delicious, and it gives me the chance to keep my dollars in the community. The atmosphere is fun and festival-like. I feel so lucky to live in a city with a thriving Farmer's Market. They also have a very informative newsletter and many special events.

Our Downtown Lawrence Farmers' Market is a fabulous resource for obtaining fresh, local produce as it builds community social connectedness as well. It also keeps our community moving right along in the direction of going local with food production and keeps our dollars supporting local growers. Growing local food security is critical in the economic times we're living in and our Lawrence Farmers' Market is a critical piece of this puzzle for us. I'd love to see the LFM win the prize to expand its reach into our community even further than it does already.

I can get ALL of my food and body care needs met at the farmers market (except soy milk, alas). During the season I don't shop anywhere else! What other farmers markets could I say this for??? Lawrence market is the BEST. Ever.

There is an amazing diversity of local produce, meats, eggs, floral, baked goods, ethnic foods and comraderie that is presented 3 times a week, especially on Saturdays. It's also a great place to run into friends, family and neighbors--locals and out-of-towners, who know a great deal when they see one. It's an amazing turn out of those who are one month-old to those 90+.

What's not to love about our producer only market, other than being up at seven on a Saturday? There is a real family atmosphere, which is to say that we all feel like family, patrons and producers alike. From the first weekend to the final one, there is always something distinct and delicious, whether it is early asparagus, the best charentais melons from this side of the pond or the winter whisky preserves as the year closes. Santa Fe will have to take second.
