Drive Through to Shop the Booths at the Birmingham Farmers Market

(City of Birmingham, May 26, 2020)

Birmingham, MI -The Birmingham Farmers Market recently kicked off its 18th season with changes in place to keep farmers, shoppers and staff safe. The drive-through market is open 9 a.m. – noon every Sunday in Public Parking Lot 6 at 660 North Old Woodward.

Birmingham Farmers Market shoppers can expect to find Michigan-grown produce subject to Michigan growing patterns. Just in time for Mother’s Day, shoppers will see beautiful spring floral arrangements, plus plants, baked goods, jams, dog treats, face masks, fresh locally raised shrimp, eggs and meat from vendors such as: Beaverland Farms, East River Organic Farm, Farm & Forest LLC, Fusilier Family Farms, Motor City Sea Farm LLC, The Feminine Farmer, Golden Wheat, Springbrook Farms, Gus & Grey, Knife Sharpening by Gary Campbell, Treat the Dog, The Cheese People of Grand Rapids and more.

The market is closed to pedestrians and open to vehicles only. Cars travel north and enter the market off North Old Woodward. Display tables are set up at the entrance to show packages offered at each station throughout the market. Cars then drive around the perimeter of the market to make their purchase. Shoppers will remain in their vehicles and place exact cash into a basket. Shoppers are encouraged to bring small bills for purchasing mainly $10 or $20 packages; change will not be provided. Items will be placed into the trunk of vehicles.

By late spring, shoppers will find home-grown rhubarb, parsnips, herbs, early organic vegetables, strawberries, garden plants, zucchini, cucumbers, hoop-house tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, basil, beans, mushrooms, turnips, kale, lettuce, green onions, sugar peas, radishes and spinach.
