  Market Talks

From how to take soil samples to planting a flower, how to make a bath bomb or carve a pumpkin, customers can watch and  learn, maybe even get a chance to try it for themselves.

2020 Sponsorship Opportunities

Once each month our chef demonstrators will feature a recipe made with a choice of the hundreds of seasonal Michigan grown fruit or vegetable items available at the farmers market. Customers get a sample and the recipe.

Until Michigan's Executive Order is lifted we will be selling food, personal hygiene and cleaning products. No plant sales are permitted at this time. Prepared food consumption onsite is prohibited but our vendors will offer their entire menu for take-away.  Due to the restrictions there will be no live music, demonstrations, sampling or children's activities.
