The University of Michigan Health-West Farmer’s Market is set to open for the season on Thursday, May 12, continuing to serve our community with fresh produce and products, while supporting local farms and small business owners.
When the market opens for the season, 35 vendors will be on-site at the hospital’s Wyoming campus selling local fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses, baked goods, plants and more. Artisan vendors will be selling handmade items including clothing and home décor.
“We are looking forward to another great season at the market,” said Michelle Rademacher, Head of Community Outreach, University of Michigan Health-West. “A fun new addition we have this year are local musicians who will be performing over the lunch hour.”
Another addition to this year’s market is the return of Kids Day. After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Kids Day is back on Thursday, June 16. The first 250 kids to arrive at the information table will receive a free gift. There will also be activities including a scavenger hunt, crafts, yard games, a traveling zoo and more.
On average, the University of Michigan Health-West Farmer’s Market sees nearly 1,300 people daily during the peak season. As in past years, the market will continue to accept EBT, P-EBT, Double Up Food Bucks, WIC, Senior Project Fresh coupons as well as cash and most major credit cards.
The market opens Thursday, May 12 and runs each Thursday through early October. Hours are 9:00 am- 2:00 pm. For more information visit www.umhealthwest.org.
