Welcome to "Market Town" ...

... where you can enjoy 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, which celebrates its 25th season this summer. Every Saturday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, May to the end of October, 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 fresh Michigan 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 freshly 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!  Surrounding the market are the shops and stores of downtown Farmington, including a great choice of restaurants. So come to Market Town!

Shopping the market is easy and fun, especially if you are 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 come back often. Philosopher Joseph Campbell says it best and simply, "... It is here, It is here, it is here ..."

This year 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 such as our annual Farmers Market corn roast and Harvest Moon Celebration.

As we look forward to the 2018 season, the market is proud to renew its participation in the state run Senior Project Fresh Nutritional Assistance Program and 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 offer up to $25 worth of FREE food assistance providing fruits and vegetables for those in need. We also offer food assistance and outreach to those in need in the greater Farmington area through the Neighborhood House in affiliation with the Goodfellows. 

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