Kings Park, NY  (June 1, 2012) –

The community of Kings Park welcomes back the Farmer’s Market in the municipal lot at Church and Main on Sunday June 24, 2012 from 9:00 AM through 2:00 PM. 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, poultry and much more.  The market will run through November 18, 2012.

 

"The Kings Park Civic Association is proud to partner with Friends and Farmers Inc. to sponsor the Kings Park Farmers Market." - states Ann Marie Nedell, Kings Park Civic Association member.  "Everyone in the community is really looking forward to another exciting year at the market.  It has become the cornerstone of our town and really enhances the sense of community in our hamlet while vitalizing our downtown business area.  This year we have a wonderful line up of talented musicians playing every weekend.  If you are interested in volunteering your musical talent, please contact kingsparkfarmersmarket@gmail.com for further information."

“ 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 your favorites from last year.  This market has been such a great success and we are very grateful to the community, it is really amazing” Bernadette Martin, Director Friends & Farmers Inc.   

We will be accepting fresh and canned food donations for The St. Joseph's Church of Kings Park 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.   You can check the Kings Park Farmer’s Market Facebook page for the dates.
