Why is it that February, March and April felt like three years and May, June and July felt like three weeks?! Although the seasons go quickly, they do not go unappreciated. The market is full of color right now and we could not be more grateful for its beauty. We are seeing melons, peaches, plums, beans and so much wonderful produce popping up at the market. Join us tomorrow for another FULL market day. As we embark on the beginning of August, we are reminded that Summer is almost coming to an end. So be sure to get to the market before your favorite Michigan produce is gone until next year! So, come out this Saturday and buy for now, for later or for both! Shop from over 55 local farms + food businesses offering a variety of products such as fresh greens, peppers, peaches, blueberries, sweet corn + mushrooms, farm fresh meat, eggs + cheese, fresh baked goods (GF/vegan options too!), pasta noodles, hard cider, coffee, dumplings, salsas, kombucha + so much more! We look forward to seeing you there! 

Take a look at the list below to see which products will be available tomorrow! If you are wondering WHO will be at the market, take a look at our ROLL CALL on our Facebook or Instagram! The market is open Wednesday, Friday + Saturday 8AM-2PM now through October.
