Waldo Farmers Market Opens May 1, 2013

Waldo Farmers Market

Now in it’s third year, the Waldo’s Farmers’ Market is preparing to open for the  season  this week:  Wednesday  May 1, 2013.  It’s located one block east of 79th and Wornall next to Habitat ReStore and the hours are 3pm-7pm every Wednesday.

I view the Waldo Farmers’ Market as the little sibling of the Brookside Farmers’ Market–a bit smaller, grungier and casual then it’s neighbor to the north.  Here you will find the usual organic and sustainably grown vegetables, meat, eggs, cheese, jams, honey, flowers, body products and herbs. However, the Waldo market offers a couple of unique items:  this year you can buy  H and C handcrafted ice cream or try organic barbecue from Smokin’ Fresh Streetside BBQ–including vegan options (that sounds interesting!).  One stop at this market on the way home from work and you can pick up ingredients for a delicious dinner in just a few minutes.

Check out the Waldo Farmers Market website for more info, or look for their Facebook page.  A portion of the vendor fees go to Habitat ReStore.  Remember to bring a bag for your purchases, cash for easy transactions and pets are ok if they are on a leash.  Thank you for supporting Waldo!
