Open 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Saturday from May to November, the Farmers' Market at Kennedy Park offers a wide variety of fresh produce that can help local residents maintain a healthy and nutritious diet. Nearly all of the produce is locally grown and prices are competitive with local supermarkets. Some vendors take food stamps.
