This year’s 40 booth selection will include hot and prepared foods, plants and condiments, artisan made items, eggs, pork, honey, oils, spices, salsas and preserves, along with a large variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables. The Market will remain on Thursdays, beginning on June 5th and running through until October 9th, from 3:00pm until 7:00pm at the Township Hall (located at the corner of Platt and Michigan Ave, 6201 W. Michigan Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48108).

“We are excited to grow the Market this year having sold out our booth space. We look forward to seeing folks at the Market on Thursdays doing their weekly grocery shopping with vendor offerings varying from produce, fruit, meats, eggs, bread, cheeses, preserves and pickles, oils, and spices. We also have a great line-up of hot and ready-to-eat foods from local businesses such as Brewed Awakenings, Pescara Hand Crafted Foods, and Palm Palace. The Market is going to bring our community together as they access locally grown foods, grab some dinner with friends and family while enjoying the entertainment.,” noted Township Supervisor Mandy Grewal.

“This year the Market has been added as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) location with participation by Prochaska Farms and Zilke Vegetable Farm. This addition of the CSA program, as well as the expansion of market offerings, is directly in line with the market’s mission to strengthen and support local and regional food and agricultural businesses, increase healthy and wholesome food access, while promoting community gathering spaces,” expanded Grewal.

The Pittsfield Township Farmers Market is a proud member of the Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA).
