If you love asparagus, now’s the time to get it at Wichita’s farmers markets.
Lettuce is also in plentiful supply as the Old Town Market opens this first Saturday of May, and a new market at Pearson’s Farms at 33rd and Hillside joins the scene. Two weekday markets also provide fresh-picked shopping. A last-minute change has closed the Delano market, at least for now.
Here’s a calendar to give you an idea of when you can find certain produce at the markets. It’s an approximation, because the weather and other factors are at work on the farms. And expect to find surprises that aren’t on this list.
