The Independence Farmers' Market offers the freshest produce, plants, jams, jellies and more in Independence. Come explore the selection or make a beeline for your favorite vendor. Either way, we'd love to see you at the Independence Farmers' Market.
The Independence Farmers' Market offers a wide selection of locally-grown meat and produce, homemade sweets and treats, and hand-made crafts, all of which have been grown or made within a 100-mile radius of Independence. As a growers-only market, produce and products that are shipped in or purchased at auction are not allowed.
Our location at the Independence Uptown Market allows the market to operate nearly year-round, with a May-through-October summer season and a December-through-April winter season. The Independence Uptown Market includes a covered, open-air pavilion and an indoor pavilion, with restrooms available for public use.
We accept several forms of payment, including cash, card and EBT.
Additionally, individuals who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) qualify for the Double Up Food Bucks program, which provides a dollar-to-dollar match on fresh fruits and vegetables, up to $25 a week.
Please note: Card transactions must be exchanged for market tokens with the market manager.
From locally-grown produce to homemade jams and jellies to handmade products and crafts, the Independence Farmers' Market offers wide selection of quality products that we're sure you and your family will enjoy. We hope you'll join us soon.
