What forms of payment are accepted?

While some vendors may accept credit/debit cards, we recommend bringing cash to purchase your items.

If you do not have cash on hand, you can purchase Market Tokens at the Information Booth with your debit/credit card, and vendors will accept those tokens as payment. 

The Lenexa Farmers Market also accepts SNAP EBT cards and is part of the Double Up Food Bucks program, a healthy food incentive program that helps low-income families eat more healthy food and supports local farmers. SNAP participants can swipe their EBT cards to get SNAP tokens to use for purchases up to $25. You will also receive a matching amount of Double Up Food Bucks tokens that can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables.

What can each type of token be used to purchase?

We have three types of tokens:

Market Tokens (blue): Purchase these with your debit or credit card. Tokens are in $1 increments, with a $5 minimum purchase. These tokens can be used to purchase any items at any vendor at the Lenexa Farmers Market.

SNAP Tokens (red): SNAP participants can swipe their EBT cards for up to $25. These tokens can be used to purchase:

  • Fruits and vegetables

  • Honey

  • Baked goods and cereals

  • Milk, cheeses and eggs

  • Seeds and plants for food

  • Coffee beans/grounds

  • Dips, salsas and frozen foods

  • Meats and poultry

  • Nuts

​Double Up Food Bucks Tokens (green): These will be given to SNAP participants who purchase red tokens. They can be used to purchase:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables

  • Seeds and plants for food

Where are restrooms located?

There are restrooms in the following locations:

  • On the southwest corner of the outside of the Lenexa Rec Center.

  • Directly inside the south Lenexa Rec Center entrance, on your right.

  • Inside Lenexa City Hall/the Lenexa Public Market, across from the elevators.

Are pets allowed?

Your four-legged friends are allowed on the Lenexa Commons area, but for health and safety reasons, they are required to stay at least 15 feet from the vendor area and should be on a leash. If you have a retractable leash, please keep it retracted.

Additionally, we kindly request that you pick up after your pets. Pet waste stations are located throughout the civic campus for your convenience. 

What happens if there is inclement weather?

Because the Farmers Market will primarily be located under the awning on the bottom floor of the parking garage, markets will usually be held rain or shine. If thunder or lightning is visible or audible (or other dangerous weather exists), the Market Manager will determine whether it is safe to continue the Farmers Market.

For inclement weather updates, check our notification line below:

Is smoking permitted?

Smoking is prohibited on Lenexa’s civic campus. There is a designated smoking area located southwest of the public parking garage.
