The Kings Park Farmers Market is back with new vendors and fresh offerings, beginning this Sunday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The market, located in the municipal parking lot on Main Street, will run through November 18.
Regional producers will be offering fresh products including vegetables, herbs, fruits, baked goods, a variety of fish and shellfish, eggs, cheeses, mushrooms, pasta, pickles, fair trade coffee, gluten free products, handcrafted soaps and poultry among other items.
"The Kings Park Civic Association is proud to partner with Friends and Farmers to sponsor the Kings Park Farmers Market," said Ann Marie Nedell, of the Kings Park Civic Association. "Everyone in the community is really looking forward to another exciting year at the market.
In addition to food, shoppers can also expect to find live music on most Sundays. "This year we have a wonderful line up of talented musicians playing every weekend," said Nedell.
Bernadette Martin, Director for Friends and Farmers said the market has been a success.
“The farmers and I are very excited to be back in Kings Park. We are looking forward to a great season with a few new producers and favorites from last year. This market has been such a great success and we are very grateful to the community, it is really amazing," said Martin in a statement.
The market will be accepting fresh and canned food donations for the St. Joseph's Church Food Pantry in conjunction with the St. Vincent De Paul Society, at the market manager’s tent beginning July 1 and every other Sunday thereafter.
