Small Growers Farmers Market

When: Fridays, 5-7 p.m. Continues through Sept. 29 2012

The Ivanhoe Neighborhood — the area bounded by 31st Street, Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard, the Paseo and Prospect Avenue — has its own Small Growers Farmers Market. It's part of a project called Grown in Ivanhoe, which community activist Dina Newman calls "a working model of an urban food 'micro-oasis' within the 'macro-realities' of an urban food desert." Every Friday through September 28, vendors sell their goods from 5 to 7 p.m. in the parking lot of the Nutter Ivanhoe Neighborhood Center (3700 Woodland, 816-921-6611). The big thing? Okra, Newman says, that is "grown fresh here and sells out immediately." She calls it "the new cash crop in the 'hood." See growninivanhoe for details.
