We're so proud of the amazing year that our Farmers Markets in Ypsilanti have had!

Did you know that the Markets had an economic impact of $2.4 million on the Ypsilanti area? Thriving Farmers Markets bring so many good things to our city, and mean so much more than just fresh, local food. However, the food is pretty great too!

For all the good that Farmers Markets do, they are not completely self-sustaining and require donations and community support to keep running. So please donate now if you believe in Healthy People, Places, & Economies! Also, be sure to stop by our last market of the year on Tuesday, December 23 from 3-7pm at ABC Microbrewery (Formerly known as Corner Brewery).  See you there!
