The Hens Roost & Kaiser Permanente work with local vendors and food producers to provide the highest quality food to the residents of Kern County.  For the last ten years we have been operating in person farmers markets in multiple locations throughout Bakersfield.  We work with only the best family farms and food producers throughout the central valley who use either organic or sustainable and safe growing practices.  Since the COVID 19 pandemic has hit Kern County; we have been working diligently to adjust the way we connect our farmers and food producers to the community in order to continue to provide the highest quality food to all of you.  Our new format for the foreseeable future will be a Virtual Farmers Market system.  We have made the choice to move to this digital platform to ensure not only the safety of our community, but even more importantly, the safety of our farmers and thus ensuring the food supply chain remains intact.
