Meet Your Market: Troy Farmer’s Market
The Troy Farmers Market isn’t your average stop for local fruits and vegetables. Opening June 18th, this farmers market makes every Friday afternoon an event, and will be bigger and better than ever in their new location at the Community Center North Lot (3179 Livernois) .
While it is a great place to find quality local produce, Troy Farmers Market also includes an array of Michigan-made products, like homemade pasta, wine and BBQ sauces, as well as other farmed products like honey, eggs, beef, pork, chicken or even plants and shrubs. Most vendors have been with the market since its first year in 2018, but new to the market this year are some exciting new additions, like authentic polish pierogies, fresh roasted coffee, homemade pies, and artisan cheese!
Beyond the products you can take home, the Troy Farmers Market is a great place to find a good bite! They have a food truck at every market, with appearances from E and L’s Tiny Tacos, The Lobster Food Truck, Motor City Franks, and Notch’Yo Nachos. On July 9th, 16th, and 23rd, you can even see local chefs bring farmers market finds to life with live cooking demonstrations.
Involve the whole family in your weekly farmers market trip! Troy Farmers Market has live music every other week, and different take-away crafts for kids at every market. On June 18th, the first 250 families to visit will get a free shopping bag for joining in the fun!
So mark your calendars for an entire summer’s worth of Friday afternoon plans — Troy Farmers Market is open noon-5pm June 18th through October 1st!
The Market will be at their NEW location: The north parking lot at the Troy Community Center, 3179 Livernois Rd, Troy, MI 48083 (by the Bocce and Shuffleboard courts)
