Business and community leaders will help kickoff the inaugural season of the Kenmore Community Market at 4 p.m. June 1 with a ribbon cutting and grand opening festivities at Cedar Park Northshore Church.

“There is a lot of buzz throughout Kenmore. We have been blown away by the support we have received by so many of our neighbors. I am confident the market will quickly become another reason why we all love Kenmore,” Dan Neary, Northshore’s lead pastor, said in a release.

More than 20 vendors, including farmers, crafters, food trucks and artisans, will be part of opening day. Special activities are planned, including fun and free games for kids.

“I am really excited by the variety and quality of our vendors,” Jenni Jensen, market director, said in a release. “There is a great deal of interest, and there are a few spots still available.”

Just a few blocks north of Kenmore’s downtown core, Cedar Park Northshore Church is located at 18737 68th Ave. NE. The church will host the Kenmore Community Market from 3-8 p.m. every Thursday from June through August.
