2019 Saturday Market Season

Looking forward to a fabulous market Saturday, October 19. The market is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marquette Commons, 112 S. Third St.

Recently we practiced wearing our warm clothes! This coming Saturday looks to be a bit of a reprieve, however, we know the cold will be here again. So be sure to check out the beautiful wool apparel at the marekt and add something new to your outerwear selection to be ready when the winter winds return.

Celebrate Autumn at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market and stock up for the winter.

What’s new at the market this Saturday? Wild cranberries, more apple varities, more winter squash. There will still be fresh sweet corn and tomatoes.

Rachel Bloch will be at the market with pumpkin soup to taste. One of the many ways to enjoy winter squash!
The market accepts cash, credit/debit cards, SNAP, Double Up Food bucks, WIC Project FRESH, Senior Market FRESH and Hoophouses for Health.

50 vendors will there with locally grown food, plant starts, artisans and much more. Come check out the new and returning vendors.

There is so much in season now: Though the outside temperature is quickly dropping and the inside heat is being turned on, the crops are still producing, bountifully. Tomatoes are still available, late season strawberries, raspberries and corn on the cob, crunchy greens, ground cherries, edamame, Brussels sprouts and all kinds of squash
