Look for an explosion of color at Saturday’s Farmington Farmers Market, with the return of flowers and bedding plants and nine new vendors.
Open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Walter Sundquist Farmington Pavilion in downtown Farmington, the May 23 market will welcome nine new vendors, with 12 returning from opening day.
You can enjoy the market “the old-fashioned way,” by walking through while following the new protocols to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Entrance and exit points are limited, and you must wear a mask in order to shop.
Market-goers will follow a marked, one-way path to visit vendors, and there are four hand-washing stations. Starting this week, families can shop together, and everyone may bring their own bags to help reduce plastic use.
There are also opportunities to pre-order and pre-pay vendors online or by phone.

- Beaverland Farms Detroit (formerly Brightmoor Farms)
