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:
The Kingston Farmers Market is committed to maintaining diversity and equality in all levels of our organization, particularly vending opportunities and Board member positions with full participation in policy formation and decision-making. We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences and is inclusive of all Kingston and surrounding communities.
The Kingston Farmers Market stands with our BIPOC community members. We pledge to work to remove barriers to access to the Market for vendors, leadership and customers. We work to cultivate an anti-racist and anti-oppression culture within the Market community.
