Kingston Community Harvest Market

Formed in 2005 to address the closure of the only grocery store in north Kingston, Community Harvest Kingston’s (CHK) goals are to increase access to local, healthy food; provide education on the benefits of eating a healthy diet and to build community.

To achieve these goals, CHK’s initiatives include The Community Harvest Market, a weekly affordable farmers market, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019; the Community Harvest Garden, a 4500sqft. organic produce garden located in north Kingston; the Community Harvest Market voucher program, a mechanism to ensure fairness for both its market producers and to market visitors, many of whom cannot afford farmers market prices; the market’s on site children’s and senior’s gardens, raised garden beds designed to promote healthy eating while learning about gardening and healthy life-styles in an inclusive, information sharing manner; and monthly Special Events, which include live music, cooking demonstrations, free healthy food snacks, face-painting, children’s activities and community information.
