Metro Detroit Famers Markets

Metro Detroit Famers Markets

WESTLAND, Mich.–– In Michigan, we have access to plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and amazing local fare! In Metro Detroit there are places where you can grab some delicious fresh food and support our local farmers and mom and pop shops. Farmers markets are the perfect place to do just that. Farmers markets allow us to explore new food avenues and step away from the typical grocery shopping experience. We've come up with a list of Metro Detroit Farmers Markets that you can take advantage of this season.
