Best Farmers' Market

Kingfield Farmers Market

Every farmers' market can be judged on three factors: its produce, its vendors, and its good old-fashioned charm. The Kingfield Farmers Market excels at all three. It has farm charm to burn. Its selection of fresh produce glows like jewels, passing throughout the growing season from rhubarb to garlic scapes to summer squash to apples. The market also has plenty of prepared items from the crème de la crème of mobile food vendors like Chef Shack, Foxy Falafel, and Bogart Loves. Breads and breakfast treats are available courtesy of Sun Street Bakery. You'll find musicians, handcrafted items from artists, and even a clown who entertains kids with custom-made balloon beasts. On every adorable, community-building level, Kingfield wins our hearts and stomachs every summer Sunday.
