Saturday is "Market Day" in Downtown Farmington!

Welcome to "...Saturday life in a Michigan small town". On behalf of the greater Farmington community, we proudly invite you to discover the many attractions of our weekly Farmers and Artisans Market. Every Saturday from 9:00am to 2:00 pm, May into November, brings scores of both locals and visitors to our city center marketplace for a unique experience that we think is distinctly Farmington ... festive, vibrant, colorful and always fun..

At our market you will find fresh locally grown Michigan produce, locally prepared artisan foods and hand crafted originals for both home and garden. Take the time to stroll the market to find the perfect complement for your dinner table, pantry, porch and garden.

Here in downtown Farmington on any given Saturday, nestled between farm tables heaping with Michigan fresh produce, you will find fresh baked breads, rolls, croissants and bakery sweets among jams, jellies, fresh honey, hearty sauces, spices and oils. Shop for fresh catch Michigan lake fish, locally butchered meat and artisan cheeses while you fill your market bag with fresh made salsas, locally roasted coffee and tempting pies. If you truly enjoy fresh, local and in season, then we have the perfect market for you!  Our partnering sponsor Fresh Thyme Farmers Market is conveniently located steps away.  If we don't have it they do!  All around are the shops and stores of downtown Farmington including a fine choice of restaurants to choose from!

Shopping the market is easy and fun especially if gifting yourself or saying thank you to that special someone. Share your market experience with cut flowers, beautiful pots, elegant candles, fine photography, glass and garden works or maybe that special card, even a bottle of wine.

Make plans to gather with us. Tell a friend or better yet bring one. Come listen to the music, talk with our chefs, ask a farmer, watch the little sprouts play. Have lunch, shop around the downtown ... feel welcome and comeback often ... Philosopher Joseph Campbell says it best and simply, "... It is here, It is here, it is here ..."

2017 will bring fabulous top metro chefs to downtown Farmington along with soulful entertainers. Take a minute to click on our market calendar to find new and special events to go along with long standing traditions like our annual Farmers Market corn roast and Harvest Moon Celebration.

As we look forward to the 2017 season, the Market is proud to renew it's participation in the state run Senior Project Fresh Nutritional Assistance Program while launching Project Fresh W-I-C, food assistance for women, infants & children in cooperation with the Michigan State Department of Human Services and the USDA. These programs provide up to $25.00 worth of FREE food assistance providing fruits and vegetables for those in need.

For all that can be said and written, nothing says it all more beautifully than a heartfelt "...Come to market..."
