Our Weekly Lineup

Events are what sets our market apart and altogether tells a story of Farmington - A community steeped in tradition with a history as welcoming, festive and oh so family friendly. Whether it's singing our national anthem on opening day, enjoying an old fashioned corn roast, ringing in the fall harvest season or scaring up a "ghoul time" at The Haunted Market, we are truly a market for all ages and a must do weekend destination!

Produce Availability ChartThe MSU Center for Regional Food Centers has created a chart showing when Michigan-grown produce is in season.  Use it to plan your menus!
If you like to plan your business around what is growing in season to the Market, here is a handy produce chart.
