15078 Beaverland Street, Detroit MI, 48223
This is our fourth year at the Farmington Farmers Market, and we couldn't be more thrilled to be here!
We're located in the Brightmoor neighborhood of Detroit. Our farm sits on 28 city lots, which is just over 2 acres. Kieran and I live at, own and operate the farm.
We grow annual fruits and vegetables but look forward to transitioning into selling trees and more perennial crops as soon as they mature.
Our favorite thing about the Market: Getting away from solitude of the farm, and being, active, beautiful space to showcase all our vegetables.

Goetz Greenhouse and Family Farm
Our family has been stewards of the same land in Monroe County since 1905. Three generations of our family provide the energy and expertise to operate our farm.
We grow a large assortment of vegetables as well as hanging baskets, herbs and other potted plants in the spring. We have been growing vegetables since 1979 and have greatly expanded since the start.
We believe the key to healthy produce is healthy soil. We work hard to incorporate cover crops, manure and compost into the soil. Although not organically certified, our farm uses many organic practices. We favor vigorous cultivars and are continually trialing varieties to select those with optimum flavor and nutrition, the same way good farmers have done it for generations. Over the years we have been using many organic practices, and we have adopted a cover cropping program to greatly improve the health of our soil.
Our favorite thing about the Market: We count Farmington as our No.1 market during the peak season of August and September. And we're happy that the market operates in a safe way so we can see our favorite customers. Thank you, Farmington!

Strong Soil Farm
We are located near Jackson, surrounded by 1,000 acres of protected Sandhill Crane sanctuary.
We are a very small, first generation farm. Myself and my wife, Miranda, started farming in 2014 on leased and borrowed land. Today we own 10 acres of virgin land, and we farm about an acre of it.
We grow a variety of very clean, triple-washed produce with an emphasis on quality. We want to provide the best food on the earth! We sell only what we grow ourselves.
We have a no-dig and no-till garden of permanent beds that never have a machine run over them or break them up, which kills and drives away worms, snakes, frogs and the beautiful universe that is natural soil life. No dripping oil, diesel or antifreeze on our garden. It is world-class food grown in an old-world way.
Our favorite think about the Market: The intelligence of the local food enthusiasts who live and shop here! There are so many smart forward-thinking people wh are well-versed in what makes great food great! The market starts with YOU!
Trillium Wood Farm
We're Allie and Elise Thorp, sisters and nutritional therapy practitioners who created Trillium Wood Farm in 2013 from a simple concept: Food should be trustworthy and delicious.
Mainstream labels weren't enough for us, so we started raising our meat ourselves. We wanted to guarantee that our food came from animals who had a purpose, lived with dignity, and positively impacted the environment - resulting in healthier food.
the meat from our farm and our partners is what we feed ourselves and our family, and we can't wait to help you experience the difference!
Our promise: Pasture-raised, always (conditions permitted). Humanely raised and slaughtered. Rotational grazing for land health. NO routine antibiotics. NO harmful chemicals. NO hormones given. To give you an honest connection to your food.

Xiong Fresh Asian Produce
My small family farm is located in Emmett, about 70 miles northeast of Farmington.
My love of farming started with my parents, who farmed vegetables near Milwaukee, WI for about 40 years. Even when I was attending college, I would come back home every chance I could to help my parents on the farm. After retiring from teaching art for DPS, I became a full-time farmer.
My parents taught me that if you take care of and nurture your land, then you will have a fruitful harvest, and I've applied that to my farming by using sustainable farming practices. When you buy my vegetables, you will be getting the freshest and tastiest vegetables because everything is picked fresh the day before we come to market.
Favorite think about the Market: I have been coming to the Farmington Farmers Market for over 10 years now, and I honestly, love this market. Our customers are fun, happy and diverse. They are not afraid to learn and experiment with new vegetables. I appreciate each and every one of them.
