Overview: 


The Canton Farmers Market is an open air market which offers Michigan produce, locally produced food and hand-crafted goods. The Market is held rain or shine, as the farmers still harvest their produce and bring it to the Market, no matter what the weather. 

Senior Project FRESH!  


The Canton Farmers Market will now accept Senior Project FRESH (video) program vouchers.  For more details, contact the Market Manager at 734/394-5375.

At the Market, you can listen to live entertainment while shopping for local goods, stroll through the Historical Society Pole Barn filled with displays and get a glimpse of Canton's farming past and even do some laundry, the old fashioned way. 

Cooking enthusiasts can learn from local chefs as they cook with seasonal produce and gardeners can find out answers to lawn and garden questions at the Master Gardener Volunteer tent.  Market Kids can listen in on Canton Public Library Story Time, participate in interactive music activities with Ms. Carissa, jump in the bouncer and create a weekly craft. With cooking and gardening workshops, entertainment, kids activities and historical building tours, there is something at the Market for all ages.
