Special Message from the Market Manager
"Come to Market..."
Market Managers 2019 Opening Day message!
How many times have I said this is going to be our best season ever and darn if that isn't the truth! The Farmington Farmers Market enters its 2019 season as metro Detroit's favorite for the second year in a row!
If your looking for a full on, Michigan pride farmers market, look no further as we are adding four more farmer / producers this season bringing our peak total of Michigan growers to an impressive 18 overall! This includes foragers, livestock farmers, syrup tappers, bee keepers, fruit farms, good old dirt farmers along with flower, herb and perennial farms.
Our overall roster of 92 vendors is at its highest ever as we welcome gourmet specialty foods, artisan crafts, home goods, potters, metal smithers, wood turners and more! Each week over 40 vendors will be selected to "Come to Market" making Saturdays in a Michigan small town exciting, festive, vibrant and bustling with activity. Find a fresh roast coffee, grab a Petey's donut (made fresh on site), stroll the market, listen to the music....or just hang out with "the market crowd".
Opening Day is May 18th, Armed Services Day! Come to market to help us open the season at 9:00 am. Drums will fill the air behind a march in color guard that will stand at arms proudly as Miss Farmington, Megan Cromwell sings our national anthem.
This is also our Flower Day and we will celebrate with a theme of "Swing into Spring" featuring Farmington's local, youth social dance group, "Swing Farmington" offering free swing lessons!
The Yankee Air Museum at the Willow Run Bomber Plant will be represented along with a team of Rosie the Riveters! The local American Legion Post will be be grilling hot dogs all day. There will be live music to start the early morning and a children's activity starting at 9am at our Little Sprouts Kids Corner.
Won't you be there as we gather around the old market bell to open the season? Well, this is your invitation or as we like to say..."See you at the market!"
