Keeping healthy foods within everyone’s reach
Michigan is a great state for eating fresh! And, with more than a dozen local farmers markets, Washtenaw is a great county for accessing healthy and delicious local foods.
The majority of the food sold at the markets is grown in the county, and it’s often harvested the same day it’s brought to market. It’s a great value, and you simply can’t beat the nutrition, flavor and freshness of farmers market foods unless you grow it yourself.
It’s easier than ever to shop at your local farmers market!
