Summit Local Produce Timeline (MO & IL crops)

 

Summit Produce has been fortunate to cultivate dozens of partnerships with local Missouri and Illinois farmers over the years. Many farmers do not have the time to set up shop in a Farmers Market on the weekends. So they have trusted Summit to offer their scrumptious produce at our store 7 days a week in the Kirkwood Farmers Market!

Below you will find approximate seasonal dates for the variety of local produce we offer thru out our produce season. PLease keep in mind Mother Nature controls these dates... they can and do often vary.
