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. Due to the passing of the cottage food law only items made in Michigan can be sold at the farmers market.  You will find we offer a wide varieties of items which makes a this Market  worth to come to.

The market is working with the  Amanda Segar of Michigan Farmers Market Food Assistance Partnership on obtaining a Wireless Point of Sale Device.  If all is approved the market will be able to accept bank debt cards as well as the EBT cards. Debt cards would work the same as the EBT card in which wooden tokens would be given for the amount of the transaction and used to purchase fresh  fruit, vegetables, and meats at the market.  We will keep you updated as things progress.
