The Haymaker Farmers’ Market set the standard for connecting people that care about what they eat and buy, with local farmers who care about what they grow and sell. It's a perfect match -- and it's one of Kent's most anticipated and popular community events every Saturday, all year long." David Ruller, City Manager, Kent
