It’s that time of year again! Farmers’ market season is back, and I am SO excited about it! I love going to the Metro Detroit farmers’ markets! I remember going to the farmers’ market in Atlanta with my dad. He’d buy peaches, watermelon, peanuts and other delicious produce.

Now that I have my own family, my husband (Travis) and I shop at local farmers’ markets for fresh produce, locally grown meat, and other homemade or naturally grown foods. There’s just something about using naturally grown foods, such as garden broccoli and tomatoes, to cook in your meals. The taste and texture of naturally grown food can be noticeably different from store brand food.

Another reason why we love going to the farmers’ market is because Travis and I love finding unique products which are not found in a retail store, like handmade crafts and home-baked desserts. Also, when you shop at your local farmers’ market, you are helping support your local economy and small businesses.

 

Metro Detroit farmers' markets
Farmington Farmers Market 2016

 

Last year, we visited three Metro Detroit-based farmers’ markets: Detroit, Farmington, and Sterling Heights. It wasn’t until close to the end of farmers’ market season I found out there are many different farmers markets located in the Metro Detroit area!

Did you know that?! I counted over 50 farmers’ markets just in the tri-county (Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne County) area. That’s a lot of farmers’ markets!

And what’s even better is some of the farmers’ markets are opened on the weekdays. Having a weekday farmers’ market makes it so much easier for patrons who are looking for fresh food. If you are not able to go to the farmers’ market on the weekend, then you can find a weekday farmers’ market with no problem!

I am ready for the 2017 Metro Detroit farmers’ market season! To get a jump start on this summer’s farmers’ market season, I researched online farmers’ markets located in the Metro Detroit area. To my surprise and “udder” joy (Ha! Get it?), I discovered there are at least 18 farmers markets in the tri-county area (Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne County) which open this May! In fact, a  few Metro Detroit farmers’ markets are opening this weekend!

So if you’re like me and you LOVE going to the farmers market, check out the list I compiled of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne County farmers markets which are opening this May!

Happy Farmers Market Season!
