Farm and Greenhouse Vendors
The backbone of the farm market is composed of yearly renters, some of whom have family affiliations with the facility going back decades. Farmers and greenhouse vendors have first priority on non-permanent stall locations all sale days except Sunday, and reserve the majority of available spaces on Saturday (the busiest day), followed by semi-annual and daily renters. How long any particular farmer sells depends on what he grows, so the number of stalls open on any given weekend varies with the season. Saturday-only summer daily rentals are occasionally available even in peak season and should be asked about early in the week.
If you are new to our market, Friday rentals are usually available but must be reserved in advance; We welcome new farmers! Leave a message for the Market Master by calling 248-246-3276.
During the off-season (January through April) a good number of Saturday daily spaces are open for farmers who offer long-keeping produce and other farm products such as eggs, beef, dairy, etc.
