The Metro Health – University of Michigan Health Farmer’s Market is set to open for the season on Thursday, May 13, 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, 34 vendors will be on-site at Metro Health’s Wyoming campus selling produce and food products, including baked goods and cheeses. Artisan vendors will be selling handmade items including clothing and wooden toys.
“We are taking all of the precautions to keep our vendors and shoppers safe and look forward to another great season at the market,” said Michelle Rademacher, Head of Community Outreach, Metro Health – University of Michigan Health.
To continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19, vendors will be safely spaced apart, and there will be clearly marked signage reminding customers to social distance. Hand sanitizing stations will be set up throughout the market as a reminder to shoppers to sanitize their hands. Customers are encouraged to let vendors handle touching all products.
While the market is in an open-air environment, vendors will be expected to wear masks and customers are highly encouraged to do the same.
On average, the Metro Health Farmer’s Market sees up to 1,300 people daily during the peak season. As in past years, the market will continue to accept EBT/SNAP dollars and WIC/Senior Fresh coupons.
The market opens Thursday, May 13 and runs each Thursday through early October. Hours are 9:00 am- 2:00 pm.
