The good folks that run bring us the Kent Haymaker Farmer’s Market let me know that the countdown to opening day is on. May 29th will mark the opening of the 18th season of the Kent Haymaker Farmer’s Market. So think Farmer’s Market when you’re planning your Memorial Day weekend picnic.
Here’s the details:
The Kent Haymaker Farmers’ Market will begin its 2010 season Saturday May 29th with hours 9:00 am until 1:00 pm. This year marks the 18th year for the downtown market and promises to be even larger than last year’s record-breaking season. Over 40 vendors will be on hand providing a diverse offering of locally grown produce, flowers, plants, cheeses, canned preserves, meats, mushrooms, honey, maple syrup, baked goods and ready to eat prepared foods. The popular Music @ the Market series will return this year to host a wide variety of homegrown music as well. Performances are made possible in part through a Celebrate Kent! grant provided by the city of Kent. Musicians will perform from 10 am until noon each Saturday under the Haymaker overpass at the market site along Franklin Avenue. All performances are free, open to the public and suitable for all ages.
