To support local farmers, growers, and artisans; to make available wholesome, quality food and goods, and to provide a festive marketplace that benefits the Marquette Community.

Thank you to everyone who participated in a visioning session. Your time and input is appreciated.
As we look forward to the start of the 2014 market season, the Marquette Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Board of Directors will host several facilitated planning sessions in order to provide a comprehensive review of the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market. We are hoping that the sessions will provide an opportunity for open dialogue and communication among all Downtown Marquette Farmers Market constituents to make recommendations for positive improvements and planning to provide for successful market operations and long-term sustainability. The DDA is looking to gather input regarding the structure, organization, operations and the future of the market.
It is the season for storage root vegetables. Our cold climate allows farmers to grow beautiful root vegetables. Some may be very familiar (potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic), others you may recognize but maybe have not cooked yourself (beets, turnips,rutabaga). When you purchase your vegetables at the farmer’s market you not only can meet who grew/gathered the produce, the food you are purchasing is very, very fresh. Taste the difference fresh makes with this recipe or try others in the link at the end.
