IN A FLASH: The Farmers' Market Is Back!

The 2023-2024 season of the Kent State Farmers' Market kicks off on the Student Green on Sept. 19 from 4-7 p.m.

The university has partnered with Haymaker Farmers' Market to bring a farmers' market to the Kent Campus. The Kent State Farmers' Market provides students with opportunities to learn about the local farming community, select fresh produce and connect with the broader Kent community.
