Oak Park Farmers Market Returns June 26

>
OAK PARK, MI – The City of Oak Park is thrilled to announce that its Farmers Market is returning for a second year. This year’s Market is every Wednesday from June 26 to September 25, running from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Founded in the summer of 2018, the Market will be doubling in size from last year after overwhelmingly positive feedback from residents.

This year, the City is proud to offer special Sunday Market Days, as well, to offer residents who may not be able to attend on Wednesday mornings a chance to participate. Sunday Market Days are July 21, August 18, and September 15 and run from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.

Sponsored by Humana with support from Beaumont Community Health, Ascension Providence, and Oak Street Health, residents from Oak Park and beyond are invited to come and shop for fresh produce, baked goods, and other food items, as well as enjoy free education sessions, cooking demonstrations, live musical entertainment, special events, and more!

“There really is something for everyone in the family; fresh Michigan-grown produce, plants and flowers, dessert foods, music, kids’ activities, and so much more,” says Oak Park Recreation Director Laurie Stasiak. “We’re even having a Family Market Day on August 7th and a Senior Market Day on September 11th. So be sure to stop by and explore our market this summer!”

The Farmers Market Passport and Punch Card program returns along with a new program designed with the Oak Park Public Library to encourage readers young and old to enjoy summer reading while visiting the market!
