The Menominee Historical Downtown Farmers Market is sponsored by the Menominee Downtown Business Association and hosted by Timeless Treasures Antique Mall at 902 2nd Street on Thursday 3 pm to 7pm and Saturday 9am to 1pm.
Vendors will leave as they sell out. Our market  fishermen,  farmers, and gardeners are licensed with the MDA and USDA to sell meat, fish, and eggs, and along with local vendors who hand craft a multitude of items make this a diverse market.  Due to the passing of the cottage food law the market will be featuring Jams, jellies, breads and cookies as the farmers and vendors make them.  This new law only permits items make in Michigan to be sold at the farmers Market. 
The Menominee Historical Downtown Farmers Market is running a new program "know your Farmer,  Meet Your Vendor" This is an opportunity for the customer to really know where his food is coming from  and a chance to fine out how the crafts are done and a chance to be in a drawing for a tote of goodies from the farmers and vendors of the market.
