Ann Arbor Farmers' Markets

Ann Arbor Farmers Market in Kerrytown Ann Arbor, MI

Living in or close to downtown Ann Arbor, you may not realize Ann Arbor is surrounded by strong farming communities, until you go to any of the three farmers markets in Ann Arbor. These markets are known as Ann Arbor Farmers Market, Cobblestone Farm Market, and Dixboro Farmers' Market.

You will see how much Ann Arbor cares about their food: where it comes from and how it is grown. Residents will fill up their kitchens with locally grown organic produce, dairy, specialty items, and meat; buy heirloom plants to grow in their gardens; and furnish their homes with handcrafted furniture. In addition to this, there are many talented artists who sell unique clothes, accessories, paintings, crafts, and sculptures. 

Going to the Ann Arbor Farmers Market, Cobblestone Farm Market, or Dixboro Farmers' Market is not a chore, like going to a grocery store can be, it is a social outing. Each is a locale where the community gathers to say hello, inform each other on the latest news and events, and support one another in business as well as living a healthy lifestyle free of GMOs, artificial flavors, and other nonessential additives.
