It's all happening at the 2022 Market!

The 29th annual Farmington Farmers Market offers a calendar of events that promises a healthful, entertaining and informative new season every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October 29 (and maybe beyond). Check the website for more details as the season goes on. For now, here are the highlights:

Our Fit as a Fiddle Health Fair returns after a two-year absence thanks to covid. Sponsored by Beaumont, this event is designed to be a fun and engaging way to connect with healthful resources in the fresh air during the Market. “We’ve been working towards a platform of fitness, wellness and nutrition,” said market manager Walt Gajewski. “This event does all of that.” In addition to providing direct access to locally grown fruits and vegetables, Fit as Fiddle activities will include a cooking demonstration, Walk with a Doc led by Dr. Joseph William of Farmington’s Williams Family and Sports Medical Center, a casual 5k run led by Farmington’s running Mayor, Sara Bowman, and a variety of other healthful resources. 

Providing the soundtrack for Fit as a Fiddle will be the electric violin playing of Wildwood with stirring interpretations of classic songs from screen, stage and pop charts covering the 1940s to current hits. “It’s small town,” said Gajewski. “We do things a little different here. This is one way of many ways we engage and especially  foster community.”

Senior Health Day. This year the Farmington Farmers Market was invited to join the Healthy Oakland Partnership (HOP), whose aim is to promote opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity by collaborating with local community stakeholders and caretakers.  

Powered by the likes of Beaumont, Henry Ford Health, Humana, the Oakland County Health Department, MSU Oakland County and more, HOP will be partnering with the Market to host our first Senior Health Awareness Day. While supplies last, ALL seniors 60 and older will receive a FREE $5 voucher to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from our Michigan farmers. More details to come!

Share the Harvest. We’ve done this the last couple of years – farmers and vendors donate food and dry goods to C.A.R.E.S. of Farmington Hills, which then distributes them to area families in need. This year we’re encouraging shoppers to join us by contributing non-perishable food items, including those purchased at the Market. It’s a win-win for everyone.

October 29

The Haunted Market, featuring Detroit Tap Repertory performing in costume; farmers and vendors dressed for the holiday, and POP! Club’s Shoeboxes of Doom.
