We are a small Sunday farmers market with vendors selling a large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, dried herbs, jams, kettle corn, spice rubs, honey, maple syrup, plants and other homemade crafts and jewelry. Our farmers are from Wayne, Monroe, Lenawee and Washtenaw Counties. We have dedicated vendors, customers and community members, of which many have been with us since day one. We ask our vendors that all of the products they sell be grown or made in Michigan.
Our mission is to provide local produce, flowers, plants, specialty food items and crafts to the Downriver community.
We have both virtual and in person openings for Lincoln Park Farmers Market Volunteers. Enthusiasm and dedication are more important than specific skill sets. We’re pretty hands-on so there is a variety of ways for Volunteers to contribute.
Our vibrant market is at the highly visible southwest corner of Fort Street & Southfield Road. A Sunday destination providing an important link for our community to local agriculture and fresh healthy produce. Find out all about us and our vendors.
