Save the Date: 2018 Holiday Markets

The Holiday Market dates are set for Saturday, December 1st and Saturday, December 8th from 10am-1pm. In addition to our regular 25+ producer only food vendors, we will have an additional 20+ gift and art vendors at the indoor market in the United Methodist Church of Kent. There will also be live music for both days. Shop local for your family and friends this year. Not only will you be able to buy local, organic produce and other amazing food for dinner, you can support local artists and their craft with gifts for your loved ones for the holiday.


The Haymaker Farmers' Market provides a connection between producers of local food and the community by creating a vibrant and sustainable gathering place promoting direct access to fresh and prepared food, agricultural and environmental education and the arts.

“Whether you search the stalls at Haymaker Farmers Market beneath a beautifully painted bridge, or frequent a market near you, the relationship you create with your food deepens. Take some time, find a story, engage with people. And above all, connect with your food. Your taste buds will thank you.”   — Sarah Kloos, Edible Cleveland Blog
