Kilmarnock plans farmers markets in park

The Town of Kilmarnock recently announced plans to establish a farmers market at the Kilmarnock Town Centre Park, 201 North Main Street, Kilmarnock.

“We have developed the farmers market as a new family fun activity to do in the park each month,” said mayor Mae Umphlett. “These markets will capture the old school farmers markets with fresh produce and seafood.”

These events will be held on fourth Saturdays May through October. The market is looking for vendors who sell the highest qualities of meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits, bakery items and farmers market worthy products. At this time, the market is not looking for resale items and/or arts and crafts.

“Our vision is to have a farmer’s market where fresh items from the farms and bay are available for our community by our community,” said mayor Umphlett.

“Town Centre Park provides an amazing location right in town, easy access for both vendors and guests and ample parking. Both lot spaces and covered spaces are available for this season and all fee money goes to promoting these local businesses and what they will be bringing to the market each month,” special events coordinator Ashley Jones.
