Spring has arrived in Birmingham. Each spring brings eager shoppers to downtown, ready to enjoy the sights and sounds of our unique and special shopping district. A new spring tradition begins this year with the start of the Birmingham Farmers Market even earlier in the season: On Sunday, May 2.
What I enjoy about the Birmingham Farmers Market is seeing entire families come to downtown Birmingham on Sunday mornings each summer. It is an experience everyone seems to enjoy and look forward to. Our patrons who come year in and year out know they're supporting Michigan by shopping at the market to purchase fresh locally grown produce and products. Our new patrons are pleasantly surprised by the variety of things to see and do at the market.
They appreciate the experience of the Birmingham Farmers Market including the fresh prepared foods, live entertainment and a children's craft area set up with volunteers helping them create a different project each week. Many folks also enjoy visiting with their friends and neighbors at the market, which has become a gathering place for area residents.
