This time of year we are entering our peak season, where there is the most diverse selection of delicious, Michigan-grown fruits + vegetables. This report will help you stay in the loop on what seasonal produce will be available during the various seasons. 

We're also getting really excited, as the day we've been anticipating + planning for since 2018 is finally happening this upcoming Tuesday! Join us for a fun, entertaining night at the kickoff event to our Summer Nights at the Market FREE concert + event series this Tuesday from 5-8pm!

Sip on some local beer + cider from our cash bar while enjoying some awesome, local music by AloneTogetherMusic (Hannah Rose Graves + Ty Beat) and Lady Ace Boogie (ft. DJ Dean Martian + Orlando (Bedrock)). Just bring your own chair! Music generously sponsored by 20 Monroe Live.

And if FREE live music wasn't enough of a draw, you'll have the opportunity to shop seasonally + locally from Michigan food, farm, and artisan vendors, eat from a delicious selection of food trucks, and bring the kiddos out to participate in some fun, entertaining activities hosted by Kids' Food Basket.
