Farmer markets: pleasures from the farm

fruitFarmer markets makes it easy to eat well in the summertime. Fruits and vegetables–key to a healthy diet that may help to prevent cancer–are at their most delicious peaks. And grocery shopping feels more like an adventure than a chore.

During the past few years, farmers’ markets have multiplied across the state of Michigan. Visit our online calendar to what’s in season now and throughout the summer. Check out the Michigan Farmers Market Map, too, to find a location near you.

If you are near the University of Michigan campus, locally grown fresh produce is available in three campus locations at The Produce Cart. Here is a 2013 schedule with maps; Towsley Triangle at University Hospital is one of the locations.
