Security Measure

COVID-19 Market Changes

We’re working hard to keep the Lenexa Farmers Market a healthy and safe place during the COVID-19 pandemic so we can continue to provide food access to the community.

Like grocery stores, farmers markets are considered an essential service that provide communities with critical access to food. The City of Lenexa postponed opening the Farmers Market season for several weeks to develop responsible operating plans that prioritize the health and safety of vendors, shoppers and staff. Our operations are subject to change based on the evolving nature of this public health crisis.

Have questions or concerns? Please let us know.


Precautions we are taking

  • Vendors are spaced farther apart to meet social distancing guidelines and improve circulation.
  • One-way foot traffic throughout the Market helps limit close contact.
  • High-touch surfaces and items are sanitized regularly, including payment tokens.
  • Vendors separate cash and product handling.
  • Staff and vendors wear masks and use appropriate hand hygiene practices.
  • Hand-washing stations and hand sanitizer are available for staff, vendors and the public.
  • Only vendors and staff may touch products until they are bagged and given to customers.
  • The first hour of the Market is reserved for at-risk shoppers, including seniors (age 60 and over) and those who are immunocompromised. That means 8–9 a.m. on Saturdays, 9–10 a.m. on Tuesdays starting May 26.
  • Only service dogs are permitted.
  • No entertainment, food sampling, cooking demos or children’s activities will be held.
  • Staff and vendors will stay home if they are sick.

Expectations for shoppers

You also play an important role! Here are steps you can take to help us all stay safe:

  • Plan ahead. Make a list and know what you need. 
  • Preordering is preferred, if you pay in person vendors prefer credit/debit cards or exact change in cash.
  • Please consider shopping alone, when possible, to reduce the total amount of people at the Market.
  • Leave dogs at home unless they are service animals.
  • Stay alert! New foot traffic patterns are in place. Look for signs to help navigate the Market. 
  • Shop quickly and efficiently. This isn’t the time to chat.
  • Wash your hands upon arriving and before leaving. Hand-washing stations will be available.
  • We strongly encourage that you wear a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth.
  • Be patient, flexible and kind. Thanks-yous are welcome!
  • Please stay home if you are sick. 

How to plan your shopping

  1. Make a list in advance to save time at the Market. Want to know what we expect to be available? Check out the product list and which vendors are selling them (while supplies last).

  2. If possible, preorder products from vendors to ensure you get just what you want. From online ordering and shipping to home delivery and curbside or on-site pickup, many vendors have options to fit a variety of needs.
    • If you participate in SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), reach out to the vendor to ask about placing a preorder without paying in advance. Upon arrival at the Market's information booth, you can swipe your SNAP card to get tokens to pay the vendor when you pick up your items.

  3. Find out where each vendor booth will be located. Vendors may shift spots over time.

  4. Go with the flow. We are asking the public to walk in one direction throughout the Market to limit contact with others. Follow the arrow signs directing you to vendors. If you want to visit a vendor multiple times, please circle back around via the one-way loop.
