When: Thursdays, 2-6 p.m. Continues through Nov. 1 2013
The last time we drove east on Independence Avenue, we counted very few grocery stores. Good thing the Northeast satellite of the Mattie Rhodes Center (148 North Topping Avenue, 816-241-3780) sets up the La Chalupa farmers market from 3 to 6 p.m. every Thursday. "We want people to continue to cook their cultural foods but with healthier products," says Anna Bazan, Mattie Rhodes' community services specialist. "We also have a community garden that is at full capacity with a wait list." Regular vendors include aquaponic farmers Urban Harvest KC and Panaderia de Las Americas. Call Bazan at 816-581-5657 for more information.
