Kinsmen Farmers’ Market returns for third seasonMay 20, 2019
The Cornwall Kinsmen Farmers’ Market is set to return for the 2019 season with its winning recipe of locally grown and locally made offerings.
“We are an all local, producer-only market. That means that everything for sale is grown or made by the people selling it, with the majority being within Cornwall and SDG,” said Kinsmen member and Market Manager Neil Benjamin. “It’s a great way to showcase our community and all of the great things that exist here.”
The market is hosted in the north parking lot of St. Lawrence College on Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm, with opening day set for Sunday, May 26th. It runs every Sunday until the end of October. A total of 38 vendors have signed on for this season with the possibility of even more joining.
Visitors can expect a regular offering of locally grown produce, fresh meats, homemade preserves, baked goods, and artisan products. The vendors are complemented by special events, entertainment, food-related demonstrations and family and children’s activities in a fun, friendly atmosphere.
Think of it as a social event and community showcase all in one.
“It’s a great place to make new friends and learn about and support local vendors,” added Mr. Benjamin. “The great thing about this market is that it’s bringing healthy and nutritious local food to people and it’s also showcasing the great artisan talent that exists in Cornwall and area. Cornwall and SDG is truly a wonderful corner of the province to live in and enjoy.”
In addition to the long list of popular returning vendors – like Langview Farms, Just Farms, Stewart’s Honey and Wild Rose Organic Farm – Mr. Benjamin said there are some new attendees including a chai tea vendor (coming in September), a smoked meat and rib vendor and a fruit wine vendor, to name a few.
“There really is something for everyone at the market,” he added.
