It’s the aroma of freshly cut flowers, organic produce, roasting coffee and warm baked goods. In other words, farmers’ market season in Johnson County is back.
The summertime ritual officially kicks off Saturday with the opening of the Overland Park Farmers’ Market. Other cities’ markets will open gradually over the next month or so.
By June, farm-to-table foodies will have more than half a dozen local options.
Markets this year will still have in place standard COVID-19 protocols, including mask requirements and social distancing guidelines. Each market’s specific rules can be found at their websites.
