Best Farmers' Market

Kingfield Farmers Market

Since 2001, the Kingfield Farmers Market has managed to pack an amazing amount of local culinary raw material into one small parking lot every Sunday, spring, summer, and fall. A testament to the endless energy and efforts of local ink-stained wretch David Brauer and his posse of die-hard volunteers, the collective effect at Kingfield is that you can't help but fall into conversation with the folks who grow the food you plan to sauté, steam, slice, and dice, thus adding a distinctly personal touch to what you put on the table. There's often a jug band playing, local chefs offering al fresco cooking lessons, and local artisans at work: useful diversions for the whole family while the designated galley slave shops for the week.
