The Kingston Farmers Market has announced that they are securing a temporary permit to allow their farmers and vendors to supply stands for pickup in a county parking lot in Uptown Kingston during the last three market Saturdays of March 28, April 11 and April 25. This is a safe way for our community to access food, and they accept EBT and SNAP. More information can be found on their website kingstonfarmerksmarket.org, mailing list and social media pages.
