is every Saturday, rain or shine, from 7:30 am – 12 pm. This market is the staple of the Saturday shopping scene and has a large selection of everything your household needs to get through the drudgery of meal-planning, and great gift ideas too. Located at 12th and Harrison, downtown just south of the Judicial building.
: At the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library, you can pick up a cookbook with great recipes and the ingredients to make supper. Each Monday starting June 4, customers can shop for food and plants from Kansas farmers set up in the library’s parking lot.
Local growers will sell their goods each Monday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. beginning June 4 through Oct. 8. Purchase items such as farm-fresh vegetables, herbs, flowers, bedding plants, eggs and other seasonal produce. While their parents shop, children will enjoy a new craft activity each week.
