The Pittsfield Township Farmers Market takes place each Thursday from 2-6pm at 6201 W. Michigan Avenue (the corner of Michigan & Platt), Ann Arbor. At their physical market, they have increased distance between vendors, and ask for social distancing practices and the wearing of masks from patrons to the market. Many seasonal products and baked goods are available at the open air market. Follow along on Facebook to know what will be available at each market.

To make buying locally even easier, the Pittsfield Township Farmers market now offers an online farmers marketplace. In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, folks in the area can order handmade pasta, prepared Indian food, goat’s milk soap, and more. By shopping online, patrons can pay easily with a credit card, as well as EBT and other food assistance, and enjoy contact-free pick-up on Thursdays between 2-6pm. Orders must be made by midnight on the advance Monday.
