Fresh veggies, fresh lemonade and live music; those things can only mean one thing: The Thursday Farmers Market and Artisan Fair is back in Wyandotte.
The weekly event, which runs from 2-7 p.m. each Thursday though October, began its season May 7 and will run throughout the summer.
The event is held on Sycamore Street between Biddle and First, next to City Hall.
Again this year, Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital is a presenting sponsor and in cooperation with Easten Market, they will again sponsor the children’s Power of Produce program.
The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables.
In addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market.
POP Club engages children at farmers markets and empowers them to make healthful food choices. It aims to:
• Increase family participation at farmers markets.
• Increase vendor revenue.
• Build healthier communities.
The Market offers an array of fresh, local seasonal fruits and vegetables, plants, baked goods, meat, eggs, snacks and dairy products, along with a variety of booths offering arts, craft, jewelry and wearables..
Some of the vendors you can find there are, The Eatern Market, LP Stoltz Farm, Garden Gate Floral, Grandma’s Flowers, Shrodek’s Pierogi, the Pasta Shop, Homestead Kitchen, Covered in Frosting, Kettle Corn of Michigan, Tin Can Coffee, Happy Harvest, Sno Biz Delight, DeeDee Bags, Steve’s Gourmet, The Almond King, Fat Grandmas, Vera’s Kuntry Bakery, Loves Custard Pie, Diamante Gardens, Brost Farms, Gracias Greenhouse, Betty’s Best Soaps, Retro Glow, The Record Man, Daisy Mae Candles, Country Comforts, Bring Out The You and many many more.
