Get to know our farmers in their own words
Last Saturday, which marked the end of National Farmers Market Week, we put together little posters of information on our 12 farmers that we displayed on their tents. We wanted to show our appreciation for all they do to make our market the best in metro Detroit. So we thought we'd pull together some facts and figures – how long they've come to Farmington, where their farms are located – capped off with a quote from each on what is their favorite thing about the market. What we got in return was a lot more than that. The farmers graciously shared information on the history of their farms, on their familes, and on their approach to farming and what it means to them. Those little posters grew into windows into these farmers' lives, and we were moved. So, just in case you didn't see them or get to read them all, we're posting them on this website. You can click the rotating image above or click here to see all 12. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do! As for the August 15 market, it's more of the same produce-wise, which means it's still peak time for fruit and vegetables. We officially open at 9 a.m., but most farmers and vendors will be ready for you by 8. And, of course, don't forget to wear your mask, although we will give you one if you don't have one. See you Saturday!
