The Kingman Farmers Market is a non-profit, local, volunteer effort to bring a fully functional and sustainable farmer’s market to Kingman.

On Saturday, vendors held an open house and offered food, fresh locally-grown produce and other items, entertainment, live music and information to a sizeable amount of people next to Thunder-Rode Motorcycle Accessories near Locomotive Park in downtown Kingman.

Thunder-Rode and Y-NOT Homestead were sponsors of the event.

The Kingman Farmers Market is expected to open for its first Market Day on Sept. 10 and will continue from there every Saturday through October.

There will be fresh, local produce, baked goods, pastas, dairy, eggs, meats, honey, woodworking, jewelry, candles and other items for sale.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and it is located at 102 E. Beale Street in Kingman.
