ABOUT HAYMAKER FARMERS’ MARKET
Haymaker Farmers’ Market was founded in 1992 by a determined group of community members who wanted access to local food in our beloved city of Kent. What started as a small handful of vendors under the Haymaker overpass during the summer months has grown to a vibrant, year-round, producer-only market with upwards of fifty vendors. Over the last 30 years, Haymaker has helped foster equitable access to healthy, local food and meaningful relationships between consumers and farmers, makers, and bakers.
Traveling Stanzas community arts projects bring poetry to people’s everyday lives through innovative methods and digital platforms.
