(Press Release, April 25, 2015)

Fresh scents, healthy food and friendly conversations will return to Birmingham’s Public Parking Lot 6 as the Birmingham Farmers Market’s 13th season kicks off on Sunday, May 3.

Attendees will find fresh foods and flowers from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the lively outdoor market, located on the east side of North Old Woodward (across from Salvatore Scallopini Candlewickshop_May2014Restaurant and just north of Booth Park).

By mid-late May shoppers will find lettuce, kale, rhubarb, asparagus, white onions and sugar peas, in addition to beautiful spring floral arrangements, potted plants, hanging baskets and flats. The market will feature baked goods, freshly prepared foods, spices, eggs, honey, jams and jellies, fresh meat, poultry, soaps, and dog treats.

New this year, Bird Creek Farms will be a vendor at the Birmingham Farmers Market. The Port Austin farm is in the process of becoming a certified organic farm. Their goal is to grow food for the Michigan community in a way that promotes biodiversity and regenerates the land. They aim to build soil so that it can produce nourishing and beautiful vegetables, fruits, and forage for livestock.

“We’re excited to bring in a new farm offering organic produce at our market,” said PSD twist_club01Executive Director John Heiney. “We’re hoping for warm weather and a great turnout as we celebrate Opening Day at the Birmingham Farmers Market on May 3rd.”

Special upcoming events at the market include: Strawberry Sunday on June 28 (shoppers will enjoy sweet treats and the best Michigan strawberries around), the Corn Festival on August 9 (featuring all things corn, with special crafts and old-fashioned corn shelling), the Harvest Festival on September 13 (celebrating the bounty of the Michigan harvest with a petting farm and antique machinery) and the End of Season Celebration on October 18 (held in conjunction with the Birmingham Pumpkin Patch & Halloween Parade).

The market offers a hometown experience that’s fun for all ages, with fresh prepared foods, live music, a children’s craft area and more. Throughout the season more than 70 booths feature a Sahara ad with winediverse array of locally and regionally grown produce including vegetables, fruits, flowers and garden plants, plus baked goods, hand-crafted items, soaps
