Meet our Vendors
- C and C High Tunnel Farm – Chris and Christy Jansen – We are a small family farm in the city limits of Scandia, KS. That makes us rural urban farmers. We have been growing and marketing locally grown fresh produce year round since January 2009. Our major summer crop is tomatoes, but you will find a variety of other vegetables grown along side them. During the winter months we raise fresh spinach, baby kale, and a great mix of spring salad greens! At C & C Farms you’ll find produce that is: REAL quality, REAL fresh, and REAL GOOD!
- Johnson Farms Country Market – Gail Johnson – Hello my name is Gail Johnson I run Johnson Farms Country Market. We offer a wide range of vegetables during the summer months and leafy greens during the winter months. We raise farm fresh eggs and have a fully licensed kitchen where we offer baked goods of pies, cinnamon rolls, and bierocks. We also offer a full range of canned goods pickles, salsa, and jams and jellies. We gladly take special orders on the baked goods.
- North End Farms – Jeff Cooper and Agnes Zadina – Our five acre farm in Salina focuses on regenerative agriculture, which restores land and builds soil through rotational grazing and cover crops. We specialize in pastured poultry, pastured beef, garlic, and microgreens. We grow nutrient-dense, whole food that is good for the body, the land, and the community.
- Smoky Buttes Ranch – Matt Hemmer – Smoky Buttes Ranch is dedicated to the preservation of rare or Heritage breeds of chicken and sheep. Our goal is to take these rare breeds of animals and increase their numbers, while restoring them to their former productive status. We are firm believers in the adage “you have to eat them to save them” therefore we are not only raising heritage animals but raising high quality food. Both the chickens and sheep are raised on pasture. Heritage chickens, allowed to forage on pasture are more lean and flavorful than conventional chicken, with higher proportions of dark meat. Soay sheep are a primitive breed that thrives on native grass and forbs, developing rich, flavorful cuts of lamb. In addition to our chicken and lamb products, Smoky Buttes Ranch grows quality produce year- around, including heirloom tomatoes, peppers, greens, beets and carrots.
- Wiebe Farms – Kris Wiebe – freshly baked rolls, sweet breads, pies and Wiebe cheese

SNAP households can double their food dollar at the Salina Farmers Market.

Customers may receive up to $25 in FREE Double Up Food Bucks per market day. The Winter Farmers Market is the first and thrid Tuesdays from 4-7 P.M. at the Salina Fieldhouse, 140 N 5th Street.
“We are very excited to offer Double Up Food Bucks at the Downtown Farmers Market. Doubling the food budget and encouraging people to eat locally grown fruits and vegetables is definitely a Win-Win.” Says Phyll Klima, project coordinator.
Double Up Food Bucks in Salina is part of a national movement assisting families to increase consumption of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables. According to Klima, “This Double Up Food Bucks pilot project is made possible through a grant from the USDA. The Winter Market at Salina Field House, Downtown Farmers Market, 9th and Grand Farmers Market, and the Salina Farmers Market are the only farmers markets in Salina participating this market season.” Double Up Food Bucks is a part of a USDA Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive Grant Program. This Kansas/Missouri project is called Double Up Food Bucks Heartland and is administered in Kansas by the Fair Food Network.
