    Kingston Lakeside Farmers' Market
    It is exciting to announce the prospect of a farmers market in Kingston in 2020.
    (scroll to the bottom for links to our survey and application forms)




    The idea of a market was initiated by Bethel Presbyterian Church as part of their vision as an Earth Care Congregation. It will be established with the cooperation of the City of Kingston. The proposed site will be in the city parking lot directly behind the church at 203 S. Kentucky Street. The market will be held every Saturday from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM starting next spring. At this point in the process, we are seeking information from customers and potential vendors. To establish this market it will take community support. We cannot have a market without vendors and shoppers. This will be “our” market referring to the residents in and around the Kingston Community.
