Farmington Farmers Market open during Founders Festival

Could sweet corn show up at the Farmington Farmers & Artisans Market Saturday?

It’s possible, Market Master Walt Gajewski says. But one thing’s certain, you’ll see Michigan peaches and plenty of other produce from growers at the Walter E. Sundquist Farmington Pavilion and Riley Park.
