Farmers’ Markets in Oakland County, Michigan – list for 2011

Recently the Oakland Press, with the help of Mayuri Munot, an Oakland University journalist student/blogger (@Maiya1022 ), compiled a seasonal list of Farmers’ Markets in Oakland County. Just in case the permanent link changes, I’ve reproduces the list in part, focusing on location and website listing.  (I’m assuming readers here are plugged in enough to do their own digging for dates based on location.)

With today’s food supplies being dominated by supermarket ecology, farmers’ markets often offer whole (non-processed) foods at reasonable prices. And, more often than not, the amazing opportunity to meet the people who actually grow or raise the food you’re eating.

More could be said in praise of farmers’ markets! Although nothing is quite like Eastern Market for size and variety, it’s always good to have one more place to shop for fresh, local foods.

So here they are, traveling north to south on 75.
