marketbookCelebrate summer by reading 3 great books on the themes of gardening, farming, local food, and seasonal cooking, then joining a group of like-minded readers on the 2nd Saturday of each month for an interesting discussion at a favorite place for local food enthusiasts, the Haymaker Farmer’s Market.

The first discussion will be held on Saturday, June 14 from 12 – 1 p.m.  Enjoy a discussion of Turn Here, Sweet Corn by Atina Diffley, an organic farmer in Minnesota who reflects on her relationships—with the earth, plants, animals, families, and communities—in this memoir about making these essential relationships work in the face of challenges as natural as weather and as unnatural as corporate politics.

July 12’s selection is The $64 Tomato by William Alexander and on August 9, the selection is Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.

Check out a copy of each month’s selection at the Kent Free Library. No registration is required to attend the discussion at the market, which is located on Franklin Avenue in Kent, north of Summit St. Please bring a lawn chair if you’d like a seat.

For more information, please visit or call the Library’s Information Desk at 330.673.4414 or stop by the Market Table at the Haymaker
Farmers’ Market.
