The City of Kenton will be the new host of the Hardin County Farmers Market, slated to begin Saturday, May 26 in the 200 block of West Columbus Street.
The market was previously sponsored by the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance.
The market is scheduled to run throughout the summer months from 9 a.m. to noon.
Mayor Randy Manns said the biggest change is there will be no charge to set up a booth at the market.
In addition to the typical season produce, the market will be open for people to sell crafts, baked goods, antiques, primitives, jellies, soap, candles, health foods, honey and more.
He especially wants to invite people who have personal crafts to sell.
However, Manns said, “I don’t want it to become a flea market.”
Vendors can call Stacy or the mayor at the Kenton Municipal Building, 419-674-4850, to learn more about the market and what they can and can’t sell. Booth locations will be on a first come, first served basis.
Manns said they are planning on different activities each week to draw more shoppers.
“We’re going to try and be creative to increase the number of people coming to the market,” he said. “I’d like to make is a success.”
