The Canton Farmers' Market, now in its 14th year, is brought to you by the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce. We could not have a great market each week without our awesome team that makes it all happen! Our wonderful market team includes On-Site Market Manager, Denny Kinkead, Jim Kinkead and Brandon Barr. Thank you to Denny, Jim and Brandon for being such a great asset to our market and always going the extra mile for our vendors. Thank you for helping make our market a success each week throughout the summer and fall!
