Get ready for fresh and local grown plants, flowers and produce. The 2014 Farmers Market is back for another season. From May 7 until Oct. 29 the Farmers Market will be open every Wednesday from 3-7 p.m. at Goudy Park, behind Wayne City Hall, 3355 S. Wayne Road.
This year the market will have over 25 vendors providing Michigan-made and Michigan-grown products. The Farmers Market is a great opportunity to shop local.
In addition to all of the fruits and vegetables, visitors to the market can also get homemade soap, candles, garden art and other crafts.
Over the past few years the Wayne Farmers Market has become a popular downtown destination. There are different activities for kids each week and a variety of musical performances.
The goals of the market are to make fresh, nutritious local food available to local residents, enhance the sense of community in the city and offer local businesses the opportunity to sell their goods and services.
With music, shopping, food and kids’ activities the market is a great way to spend an evening in Downtown Wayne.
Parking is available in the parking lot behind City Hall, in the 29th District Court parking lot on Second Street or the city parking lot at Sims and Wayne Road.
On May 21 the Wayne Farmers Market will host Flower Day. Local flower growers and florists will sell flowers and plants and Northside Hardware will have topsoil and gardening tools available for purchase.
Mark your calendar for Oct. 29. This will be the annual Trick-or-Treat event at the Wayne Farmers Market.
