Meet the vendor: Lemonade Wooo

Meet the vendor: Lemonade Wooo
Posted on 07/22/2020
Johni and Sami in lemonade standStop by Lenexa Farmers Market any Saturday and select Tuesdays and you will find many happy customers enjoying fresh-squeezed lemonade, limeade, iced teas, Arnold Palmers (half iced tea and half lemonade), and other variations thanks to our new beverage vendor: Lemonade Wooo. We know the drinks are delicious because most of our vendors have a glass of lemonade in hand at the market each week. 

Johni and Sami, the amazing mother-daughter duo, recently inherited the fresh-squeezed lemonade booth. Both had helped at a farmers market booth in the past and love the environment. They also have fond memories of lemonade enjoyed at the Royals games from the famous vendor who shouted “Lemonade! Lemonade! Lemonade! Wooo!” as he traveled through the stands at selling frozen lemonade. 

With the inherited booth, a business name, inspiration from the past, and the love of being together as a family, Johni and Sami jumped into testing recipes — often setting up in their neighborhood to test marketing.

Sami and Johni have a lot of fun being at the market each week. Sami, a physics teacher and cheer coach in the Olathe school district, especially loves the business and marketing side of things. Johni, who loves watching her grandchildren during the week, enjoys the adult and customer interaction on the weekends. They have support from their spouses, Bryce and Rick, who are the behind-the-scenes support crew.

Every lemonade and limeade is made to order with fresh ingredients. Enjoy some summer sipping!
