Our Mission

The mission of the King Farmers' Market is to provide fresh, healthy, and affordable produce, meats, dairy, baked goods, honey, and eggs to the local community, improve local food access and food security, support the efforts of local farmers and businesses, educate the food-insecure about healthy eating and how to prepare nutritious meals, and to promote a greater sense of community.

History

The King Farmers’ Market was created in 1998 as a coordinated effort among several farmers in Stokes County, with guidance from the Stokes County Cooperative Extension office. The King Farmers’ Market organized three area farmers markets within Stokes County, which included the towns of Danbury, Walnut Cove, and King. In 2011, the Stokes Family YMCA in the city of King invited the members of the King Farmers’ Market to move the market to the grounds of the YMCA as a means to combine our efforts to increase community wellness through access to healthy foods. The Market officially began its partnership with the YMCA at the start of the 2012 market season and both organizations, as well as the citizens of King and Stokes County, continue to benefit from the arrangement. In 2014, the King Farmers’ Market applied for a mobile POS (Point of Sale) device from the USDA, allowing the Market to accept SNAP/EBT payments, as well as credit and debit cards. In 2016, the King Farmers’ Market has continued to expand, with the addition of new farmers and vendors (bringing us to a current total of 16), and an extension of the market season from mid-April through the end of October.
