We hope you find your way to the market and stock up on your Memorial Day necessities. For those looking for aesthetics, there’s sure to be plenty of hanging baskets and planters to spruce up your landscape.

For the grilling fiends out there, there is sure to be some delicious Great Lakes, fresh caught fish and an assortment of other meats from our vendors.

Don’t forget about the range of salad mixes, herbs, dried peppers, asparagus, apples and other mouth-watering edibles that can whipped up into a fantastic feast!

We also have recipes at the Market Manager’s Table, if you’re unsure of what to make for your celebration!

Spring Market Goodies

Posted on May 19, 2008. Filed under: Seasonal News |

Now is the time to stock up on those early greens like spinach, lettuce, collards and much more! There was also some asparagus at the market last week, and some farmers had apples and root crops which they have stored through the winter for you to enjoy. 

Don’t forget that the “Early Market” features different vendors from that of the normal market, so if you come in looking for your favorite vendors and can’t find them, they probably aren’t ready to come to market just yet. But please take advantage of all of the other great things and buy from the farmers who come in on those cold mornings!

Hope to see you at the market!!!

We’ll Miss You

The Meridian Township Farmers Market lost a founding member and long-time vendor of the market this week.  Howard Stone, known best for his chickens and fresh eggs, has passed away.

As you pass his booth tomorrow, there will a place for flowers and cards. Please observe a moment of silence as you pass in remembrance of Mr. Stone- a centerpiece in the market for so long. We’ll miss you.
