Overland Park farmers market booming in its 30th year
This is a special year for the Overland Park Farmers Market, which hits 30 this year. It’s come a long way from its start with a handful of sellers in a dusty, graveled lot. Today, 50 vendors crowd into a green, 12,000-square-foot pavilion downtown Overland Park every Saturday morning to sell produce to thousands of shoppers looking to turn bacon into a BLT.
