  • The new Leavenworth City Market will be in "full swing" from May to October on the second Saturdays of the month in downtown Leavenworth, at Haymarket Square, the Leavenworth Main Street program reported in a news release.
    The market is accepting vendors with a "variety of wares," according to the release.
    "Come out as a vendor and get a new lease on life by cleaning out your attic, basement, garage and home," according to the Main Street release. "Visit the market if you are looking to add items to your household — we guarantee you’ll have fun and find unique pieces to add to your collection.
    "Spring is here with summer fast approaching and there’s no better time than now to get to know your local community better. 'Live Local' and your entire community benefits."
    Haymarket Square,  formerly Haymarket Square Outdoor Flea Market, is located at Seventh and Cherokee streets.
    “The Haymarket Pavilion is a great location to start folks shopping on second Saturdays. It was built for a city market and has the potential to increase vendors significantly, filling the covered space and the parking lot as we expand into a city market,” said Steve Lambeth, Leavenworth City Market organizer and owner of Stevie’s Antiques at 612 Cherokee. “Stop for a fantastic homemade breakfast downtown before or after visiting the Leavenworth City Market, which opens at 8 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m., then continue exploring and shopping the fabulous downtown merchants. You can’t take in the entire downtown in a day, so come often, shop and eat in different areas”.
    City Market dates are May 10, June 14, July 12, Aug. 9, Sept. 13 and October 11, rain or shine, with venders setting up before opening. Admission is free to the public, though vendor fees apply. Vendor applications may be downloaded at www.leavenworthmainstreet.com or contact Lambeth at (913) 651-5273 or steviesantiques@gmail.com.
    Historic downtown Leavenworth is 28 blocks, and filled with more than 70 retailers, including boutiques and specialty shops, artists and galleries, furniture and antiques, salons and spas, quilting, knitting and crochet, a hardware store, an old-fashioned soda fountain/grill and a popular microbrewery, plus 20 “mom & pop” restaurants, serving "authentic, excellent homemade meals," according to Main Street's news release.
