Kingston Farmers Market Opens This Weekend
Springtime is a favorite time of year for many so many people. It's the time of year where we see temperatures warm up, animals awaken from their winter time hibernation and trees and flowers bloom and comeback to life.
One of the cool things about this time of year though is that much like the animals and the trees returning, some local businesses return around this time of the year. Which brings me to today, where I learned that starting this weekend, May 6th, the Kingston Farmers Market is kicking off their new season.
The Kingston Farmers Market and Community Impact
Farmers Market's are such cool places. When a farmer's market opens up for a season, its mere presence offers an opportunity for a community to meet at one central point and literally get a taste of some of the things your local community has to offer.
The Kingston Farmers Market is no exception here. Not only does the Kingston Famers Market provide this type of environment but it's also a great help to many in the community. Specifically, Kingston Farmers Market provides an opportunity for 'more than 65 local food and agricultural vendors' to showcase their own created and grown goods. Their mission statement is simple and clear and it is...
to provide a space for local growers to sustain their businesses as well as provide the community with access to fresh, healthy food.
Currently, the Kingston Farmers Market has a 'gofundme' where donations where requested in order to purchase things like new tents and signs for the outdoor market.
The environment of a farmers market and a community coming together providing for and supporting one another truly sets it apart from any other business.
What Can You See At The Farmers Market
The Kingston Farmers Market has played host to a wide variety of some of the best local vendors. Looking at their website they have had just about anything and everything present at one time or another.
Starting with the obvious when it comes to farmers markets are the wide variety of fruit and vegetable vendors. The vegetables as well as the fruits that vendors have brought in the past are all 'certified organic'. Everything from your favorite carrots and potatoes to grapes and apples all ripe for the taking.
One thing I personally haven't seen at farmers markets before are fresh cuts of meat. Well Kingston Farmers Market has had that covered as well. numerous farms have shown up with fresh, farm-raised, organic, cuts of beef, chicken, pork, seafood and eggs. It doesn't stop there it's possible to find more exotic cuts of meats like venison or buffalo cuts.
There's plenty of other possibilities as well. The best dairy products, fresh baked goods, specialty items and even alcohol could be present when you head to the Kingston Farmers Market.
What this all amounts to is that it's a great way to enjoy your time this weekend.
