[Killington, Vermont] The Killington Farmers Market is now accepting vendor applications for Summer 2019. The Killington Farmers Market at Mission Farm is a collaborative effort supported by the Town of Killington’s Recreation Department, the KPAA and Church of Our Saviour (Episcopal). Mission Farm provides beautiful, historic setting of a bygone era. It is easily visible from Rt. 4 across from the Skyeship Gondola. Last year the market met monthly, and this year the market will meet weekly from 3:30-6:30 PM on Thursdays from June 13 through October 3.
“I am excited that the farmers market is coming back for its second year. Supporting opportunities for local commerce is important, so we hope visitors and residents alike take full advantage of what the Killington Farmers Market has to offer,” said Sarah Newell of the Killington Pico Area Association (KPAA).
The market showcases and provides a resource for local products from area crafters, bakers and fresh produce from local farmers.
Weekly special events are scheduled on Thursday’s at Mission Farm to coincide with the Farmers’ Market. Some of the scheduled events include children’s projects presented by the Killington Parks and Recreation Department, outdoor yoga, group painting instruction, seed exchange, guest en plein air artist Peter Hontoon, and a Blessing of the Animals. On Thursdays from July 11 through August 29, visitors may pick up picnic food from the Farmers’ Market on the way to the town of Killington’s River Road Concerts series –just up the road – starting at 6:00 p.m.
Vendor applications are now being accepted for Summer of 2019. The vendor fee is $10 per day or $130 for the entire season. Make checks payable to the KPAA.
