Shop local at the Wayne Farmers Market. Get ready for fresh and local grown plants, flowers and produce. The 2015 Farmers Market is back for another season. From May 6 until October 28 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 and support the community. Returning vendors include Farmington Soap Works, Steve’s Gourmet, L.P. Stotz Farms and Detroit Mini Donut. The Wayne Farmers Market is provided by Growing Hope in partnership with the Wayne Chamber of Commerce. Bring the kids and the family and enjoy the market, the playground and the walking path along the Rouge River. 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 live 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 will be available in the parking lot behind City Hall after the construction project is complete in July. Additional parking is available in the lot behind the Courthouse off Second Street, in the Wayne Activity & Banquet Center (WABC) at 35000 Sims Avenue, and across Sims behind the Michigan Avenue Shops. The new Goudy Park location also makes it easier to walk or bike to the market.
