Celebrate mom with gift from Lenexa Farmers Market

Moms work hard to care for others, and that effort often goes unseen. The same is true of Lenexa Farmers Market vendors. This Mother’s Day, consider a locally grown, raised or made gift option to honor all the ways mothers make an impact on your life.

Local farmers and small businesses also do a lot of invisible labor to bring their products to the Market. Fruits and vegetables must be planted, watered, weeded and monitored for pests. Animals need to be fed and moved between pastures. Doughs are mixed, fermented, proofed and baked. Soaps must be cured over time. And producing wine from simple grapes is no small undertaking. 

Pick the perfect tribute for mom from our array of tireless vendors at the Lenexa Farmers Market. Here are a few suggestions to inspire you.

Ways to brighten her home 

Stunning flower bouquets from See's Family Farm and StoneBriar Farm.

Flower baskets and assorted succulents from Miner’s Market Garden and JET Produce and Meats.

Vegetable and herb starter plants from Stewart Greenhouse, JET Produce and Meats and TableTop Farms.

Shop for one-of-a-kind fine art from around 50 area artists at the Lenexa Art Fair on Saturday, May 11, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. — right next to the Lenexa Farmers Market. You’ll find inventive jewelry, fiber, photography, glass, mixed media, pastel, acrylic, oil, pastel, metal, wood and ceramics.
