Ann Arbor Area Farmers Markets

Farmers Market Guide

As we enter the growing season, there are usually tons of Ann Arbor Farmers Markets popping up. This year, the Farmers Markets are opening more slowly and with additional restrictions.

The article will include both the Farmers Markets currently open and those that are not open. In 2021, we will re-evaluate whether to remove farmers markets that are still not operating.

Farmers Market Changes for 2020

For 2020, there will be some changes at Farmers Markets to promote social distancing and keep everyone safe from COVID-19.

Some markets are allowing less vendors to enable booths to be setup further apart.


Ad:


The general rules:

  • Social Distancing of 6′ maintained in market
  • No socializing at the market
  • No samples
  • No handling products
  • Pre-order options available for pickup

Many markets are opening with just a pre-order pickup model and then transitioning to also allowing in market shopping.

I do not expect to see events like cooking demonstrations, live entertainment, or food truck rallies, until late summer at the earliest.

The outdoor Saline Farmers Market is from 8a-noon in the parking lot at Michigan Avenue and Ann Arbor Rd.

Pittsfield Township Farm Market

The Pittsfield Township Farmers Market is planning to open in June and run through September. They are also planning an online Farmers Market for mid-May. They did not open until May 23 in 2019, so they are not losing much of their season.

The Pittsfield Township Farmers Market is typically on Thursdays from 3-7p. This year the farmers market will be at the Pittsfield Township Office (6201 W. Michigan Ave) all season long. In addition to the fresh foods available they usually offer special activities and entertainment. Their 2019 season did not start until the end of May.

Dexter Farmers Market

Dexter Farmers Market has adjusted their plans for 2020 opening. They are open in May only for pickup of pre-orders on essential items. The plan is to open for shopping on June 6. There will be several changes for the 2020 season. It is requested that only one member of your household shop at the farmers market, that you wear a mask, and wash your hands on entry. They will also be limiting the number of people allowed inside at a time.

The Dexter Farmers Market is held on Saturdays from 8a-1p and Tuesday 2-6p from May through October. Visit the Dexter Farmers Market on Alpine St in downtown Dexter.

Chelsea Farmers Market

The Chelsea Farmers Market is waiting for re-approval to use Palmer Commons and Chelsea State Bank lot for their Farmers Market. A decision was supposed to be made on May 4th, but as of 4:30p on May 5, it has not been announced. They do not know when they can start back up. When they do, there will be more space between vendors, products displayed behind the vendor, and hand washing stations. Vendors will wear masks and be health screened. Online payments or exact change policies will be in effect. They are also implementing an online order process for those wishing for a safer shopping environment or non-essential items.

The Chelsea Farmers Market holds 2 weekly farmers markets from May through October and 1 weekly farmers market in the winter. The summer farmers markets are held on Saturdays from 8a-1p at Palmer Commons and Wednesdays from 1-5p in the Chelsea State Bank lot from May-October. The Winter Farmers Market is held from 10a-2p on Saturdays in November and December.

The Dixboro Farmers Market is Fridays from 3-7p. The Farmers Market opens on May 29 and runs through October 23 (except July 3). Don’t miss their Cars on the Green on September 18 (rain date September 25) and Halloween Extravaganza on October 25. Find the Dixboro Farmers Market at the eastern edge of the historic Dixboro Village Green (5221 Church Rd). Free parking is available in the church parking lot at the foot of the Village Green.

Closed Farmers Markets

Cobblestone Farm Market

The Cobblestone Farm Market is over. In mid-February the team decided to discontinue their Farmers Market.

After 8 seasons of family fun and local food celebration, the market committee has decided to close for the 2020 season. We want to thank you all for supporting the market over the years and helping to build such a fulfilling community experience.

The market was started to increase local food access and build community and we’re happy to see that both areas have grown with Cobblestone and beyond.

Cobblestone Farm Market

In the comments of the Facebook announcement, they clarified that this is a permanent closure.

Cobblestone Farm Market was held on Tuesdays from 4-7p at Cobblestone Farm from late spring through fall. In addition to food available in the market, they typically have activities each week (many for children) as well as live entertainment. Cobblestone Farm is part of Buhr Park. It’s address is 2781 Packard Ave.

Farmers Markets without Updates

Westside Farmers Market

The Ann Arbor Westside Farmers Market is held in the Zingerman’s Road House parking lot in Westgate Shopping Center on Thursdays from 3-7p. Their 2020 season starts June 11 and runs through October 1. They have not announced any changes due to COVID-19. It will likely depend on conditions closer to their opening day.

Webster Farmers Market

It is not clear what the current status of the Webster Farmers Market is. They are listed on the Michigan Farmers Market Association page, but their website and Facebook page have been deleted. I received no answer at calling the listed phone number. They did not open for 2019 until June, so it may be worth checking back for details.

The Webster Farmers Market was started in December 2017. It is held from noon-3p on the second and fourth Sundays of the month during the summer. Visit the Webster Farmers Market at 5501 Webster Church Rd in Dexter. Their 2019 season began on June 9 and runs through August.

The Webster Farmers Market is unique.

  • One checkout for all vendors
  • Woven shopping baskets are provided
  • Complimentary Coffee by Stovetop Roasters
