Looking for Oakland County’s freshest fruits and vegetables? What about flowers in almost any color? On it’s ‘open’ days, the hustle and bustle of the Oakland County Farmers Market can lead you to both.
The Oakland County Farmers Market is a mainstay for providing grower-direct fresh produce and flowers to county residents and visitors. Hosting more than 100 farmers and artisans, from 17 Michigan counties, shoppers will find fresh vegetables, fruits and baked goods as well as flowers, crafts and more. Spend the day at the market and enjoy a breakfast sandwich or barbecue lunch served by market vendors. The market also hosts many special events, educational programs, cooking demonstrations and can be rented by the public for various purposes.
A producer-direct market, participating vendors must grow or make the products that they bring for sale during the main season (May–October). During the off season (November–April), vendors may bring approved farm market type items not produced by themselves. Plan your trip and menu with the Michigan Produce Availability Guide.
