Wednesday means two farmers’ markets.

The Downtown Overland Park Farmers’ Market started at 7:30 this morning and goes until sell-out, usually around noon. This market’s 50 vendors sell produce, herbs, meat and even pie, and include a farm run by refugees.

If you can’t make it today, the market also opens on Saturdays at 6:30 a.m.

This evening in midtown, the 39th Street Community Market opens up in front of coffee store Javanaut at 39th and Genessee. Its growers agree to a strict code of conduct, promising to treat livestock humanely, reject the use of any synthetic products and pay living wages to all workers.

The 39th Street Market is smaller than the Overland Park one but it will be serving fresh grass-fed beef with barbecue sauce along with a variety of breads, rolls, vegetables, beans and herbs. It is open 4:30-7:30 p.m.
