Look at all the colors + textures on vendor stands today, including the beautiful yellow of sweet corn! It's, yet again, another magnificent day, perfect weather for shopping outside and supporting Michigan farmers, food creators, and artisans! Open until 2 with most diverse selection before 1.

If you're looking for a fun activity for the kids or the whole family, visit with MSU Extension 4-H for their FREE Food Scrap Stamping in the headhouse until 1pm. 

And just a reminder, National Farmers Market Week is coming up (August 4-10), and we have a lot of fun activities planned to celebrate, including yoga + barre classes, workshops + educational opportunities, kids activities + scavenger hunt, and, of course, lots of vendors with Michigan produce, food and farm products, flowers, plants, and artisan goods. Keep an eye out on our Facebook and our newsletter (next Friday) for the official announcements + event pages for all the activities we have planned.
