Northville Farmers’ Market Thursdays

  • Thursdays starting May 4
  • 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
  • Northville Downs
  • 301 S Center St., Northville, MI 48167

Outdoor farmers’ markets are back in Northville! Come taste and see the beginning of summer every Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. from May 4 through October 26, 2017.

The market is located on the corner of 7 Mile Road and Sheldon, across from Northville Downs.

The Northville Farmers’ Market brings something for everyone. If you are a local foodie, or just love fresh food, come buy Michigan-grown fresh produce and meat. This is a great way to meet the people who produce the food and get to know some of your local farmers.

In Michigan, we grow almost everything and export it to the rest of the country. Save yourself a trip to the grocery store, support independent businesses, and experience the deliciousness Michigan has to offer.

There are also tons of living and cut flowers and plants to see, and bouquets to take home from local growers. One great perk is that a master gardener will be at the market every Thursday from 8:00 am -12:00 pm to answer your home gardening questions.

Along with delicious food and gorgeous flowers, the Northville Farmers’ Market offers Michigan-made fine juried crafts and artisanal soaps, as well as garden art, jewelry, handmade furniture and home accessories for sale as part of the more than 70 stalls available at the market. Why stop at food and flowers when you can shop locally for your home needs and support small businesses?
