The Kingston Farmers Market was founded in 2000 by the Kingston Uptown Business Association. The original goal was to draw people to Uptown Kingston on Saturdays. Over time, we’ve evolved into more; we’re fostering a sense of community, where people come together to shop, talk and learn.

Our mission is to:

Support the community, socially, physically and economically

Provide a balance of fresh produce and related products from the Mid-Hudson region

Maintain regional family farms by providing a local farm market outlet

Give educational opportunities to people that visit and share in our market endeavor
