Changes in Shopping at Pendleton’s Country Market

Summer is here! We are continuing to grow vegetables and flowers, but will be taking a break and will not have regular hours on the farm during July and August. Between working to get our house repaired so we can move back in this month, and the amount of work to keep our employees and customers safe from COVID-19, we have made some changes for these two months.

We will be offering online ordering and front porch pickup on Tuesdays.
Our Website Shop will be updated each Sunday at noon, and will be live to take orders until noon on Tuesday. You can then pick up your order on Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 – 7:00pm. For orders that need to be paid by cash, CSA punch cards or gift certificates, please call with your order by noon on Tuesday and it will also be ready by 3:00pm.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays are CSA drop off days.
We are out delivering produce to our members, and this will continue as usual!

On Wednesdays, you can shop with us at the Fermers Market at Clinton Parkway Nursery.
This market is located at Clinton Parkway Nursery at the corner of Clinton Parkway and Wakarusa. The market is open from 4:30-6:30 each week.

On Saturdays, you can shop with us at the Lawrence Farmers Market.
This market is in the 800 block of New Hampshire Street in Downtown Lawrence. It runs from 7:30-11:30 each Saturday.

Of course, you can shop here at the farm anytime by appointment only.
Please call 785-843-1409 to set up a time. The crew is busy working, so we cannot guarantee that anyone will be available to assist you on a drop-in basis.

Pendleton’s Country Market

Pendleton’s Country Market is nestled in the rich Kaw River Valley, and grows vegetables, bedding plants and cut flowers. The family wants to make their customer’s visit to the farm fun and educational, and offer Pick-You-Own vegetables in season. Pendleton’s Country Market provides quality locally produced items with personal service and honest prices.

We are environmentally responsible, using only biological pest controls in their greenhouses and many land conservation practices in their growing. Pendleton’s sells their flowers, plants and produce at the Lawrence Farmers Market, The Farmers Market at Clinton Parkway Nursery, through their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and of course at their home farm market.

Plants and Flowers

When growing bedding plants for your garden or cut flowers for your table, we take extra care with each and every plant on our property to make sure they are of quality for you. We not only grow some of the most beautiful flowers in the midwest, but we can also arrange them to help create some of the most beautiful and memorable weddings and events.

At the Farm

Everything on the farm is seasonal. Sign up for our crop update emails to keep up on what’s available at the farm. Also, be sure to like us on Facebook for more up-to-the-minute crop reports. We are located in the Kaw River Valley, where the country air and neighborly service provides a relaxing environment to shop for fresh vegetables, flowers, and garden gifts.

Where to Find Us

You can also find Pendleton’s Country Market at the Saturday Lawrence Farmers Market and the Wednesday Clinton Parkway Nursery Farmers Market. Sign up for our CSA program to recieve a weekly bag of the best produce around during the spring, summer and fall. There is no simpler way to enjoy fresh local produce all season. “Food from a farmer you know!”

About the Pendletons

“John is equal part passionate farmer, skilled mechanic, nature lover and avid entomologist. A quick trip around the farm will have you encounter hard-working, yet passive bumble bees that do the bulk of the pollinating in the Pendleton’s hydroponic tomato shed. You’ll also see beautiful butterflies arrive, pollinate and go on their way. John loves all of it. He’ll fix a tractor, do farm work and still be able to tell you where the newest birds nest full of eggs is around the farm. John can be found most days driving customers around on his vintage tractor as he shows eager pickers where the best harvest of the day is.”

“Karen is an enthusiastic farmer, dedicated educator and incredible tour guide. She has a passion for teaching people about agriculture, whether it’s about which plants to put in partial shade or the process behind how they grow their vegetables.”

“But most importantly, their passion is to farm together. Their relationship and connection with each other is one that makes you believe in something again. It’s something to get excited about… like the first ripe tomato of summer.”

– From Kansas Farmer, by Scott Stebner.

Pendleton’s CSA Cookbook

You will find the book contains recipes that are a little heavy on the “not so well known” vegetables. We’ve found that kale, kohlrabi, okra and eggplant are not as familiar to many of our members, and we try to provide more uses for these. It’s the old, “try it, you’ll like it” idea! Of course we’ve also included lots of our favorite recipes for many other vegetables and fruits that will be found in our weekly bags.

Tips on how to use the produce in your CSA bag, the local Farmers Market or from your back yard bounty.

Learn to eat locally and seasonally.

This can finally be the year where you not only keep up with your summer vegetables, but get the most possible out of them.
