With warm spring weather finally arriving, I want to take a minute to remind everyone of the Fowlerville Farmer’s Market.
The farmer’s market held its grand opening on May 3. The market will run from May to October on Fridays from 3 to 7 .pm.
The market has become completely revitalized in large part due to the new director of the market, Nadia Freeman. She has worked tirelessly to increase the number of vendors that will participate.
The market offers a wide variety of produce, crafts, baked goods and more. This fixture of Fowlerville offers area residents the ability to interact with each other, enjoy the weather and support our local economy.
Special events and products available at the market will include, but not be limited to:
• Gluten-free baked goods;
• UP pasties;
• Gourmet food vendors;
• Seasonal produce;
• Jewelry, hand-made baskets, health and wellness goods;
• History of Fowlerville book; and
• Ford Revelation Day on May 17.
The Fowlerville Farmers Market will be open, rain or shine, at its location at the DDA lot, 204 W. Grand River, Fowlerville.
Residents questions or vendors looking for more information on participating, may contact Nadia Freeman at 517-294-6088, or ‘like’ them on Facebook.
