    The days are getting longer, and the air is warming up! Soon, spring will arrive, and the smell of flowers will fill the market stalls. Until then, our dedicated vendors are still here to provide you with the best local fare in town! Second Season Market offers so many wonderful options for you to choose from. Try experimenting with some unique Michigan winter veggies! Not sure what to make with turnips or rutabaga? Ask your farmer for recipe suggestions! Choosing to cook your meals, especially with local ingredients, allows you to control what you buy and where your food comes from, which encourages better food to be produced in the marketplace. No matter what your plans are for the weekend, be sure to stop by the Market and support the local vendors who show up, snow or shine, to provide you with the best and most nutritious food in town. Nourish not only your body, but your community, and relationships at home, by shopping at the farmers market.

    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 for Second Season on Saturdays 10AM-1PM now through April 24, 2021.
