KINGMAN — The 2019 season of the Kingman Farmer’s Market is off to a good start.
The event will take place at 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday from May to October at the Thunder-Rode Outdoor Event Center, 102 E. Beale St.
The Kingman Farmer’s Market 2019 season began May 4. Saturday, May 18 will be the third one this year.
Kingman Farmers Market is a registered not-for-profit group with a mission to provide a cooperative and organized marketing alternative for small scale agricultural and hand-made specialty products. They promote local production of agricultural and hand-made specialty products. They strive to improve the variety, taste and freshness of products available to our customers and the community at large.
Some of the vendors will be selling fresh fruit and vegetables, crafts, breads, pastries, soaps, candles, jewelry, homemade bags and aprons, wooden toys and aromatic herb products.
Jack Alexander, the event’s coordinator, said Thunder-Rode started the farmer’s market a couple of years ago.
“It came about as the result of a local demand for, and an unmistakable need for a quality, legitimate Farmers Market in Kingman,” said Alexander.
“We needed a place that was easily accessible, in a location down in the old town that locals and visitors alike would be able to easily drive to, with ample parking and services.
“It’s a cost-free civic responsibility service provided to the Kingman community by Thunder-Rode and the Kingman Farmers Market members who donate their time and services to the community at no cost to make the Kingman Farmers Market possible.”
Limited vendor spaces may still be available.
