Farmers markets provide delicious, high-quality, low-cost produce and goods that are locally grown. The produce is much more flavorful since it doesn't have to shipped long distances and can be harvested closer to ripeness. Many farmers markets offer lesser known fruits and vegetables, providing a variety that can be both tasty and nutritious.


Southwest Michigan is known for its blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and tree fruits, and many local farmers have their own bee hives to pollinate the crops. They often harvest honey to be sold at the market that is delicately flavored by the nearby berry crops. Our list of markets is arranged geographically, in order of the towns running from south to north along the lake, so make sure to take a look at what's available just up the road and on different days. Enjoy the delicious harvest of our Lake Michigan shoreline.
