Saturday, April 21, 8 am - 3 pm. Join us on this special Market Day to learn about the CSA opportunities offered by Ann Arbor Farmers Market farmers and vendors. You’ll have a chance to speak directly with the farmers about their products and CSA offerings. Best of all, CSA members can pick up their shares right here at the Farmers Market for your convenience.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA is a “subscription” to a farm to receive a weekly box of produce. It’s a way to support your local farms and eat healthy all summer. Farmers get an upfront payment which helps pay for the year's supplies, while members gain a direct relationship with the farm, enjoying fresh and seasonal meals every single week.

There are many produce CSAs, with their weekly boxes of gorgeous, fresh, seasonal foods throughout the summer, but there are also some wonderful, innovative CSAs incorporating more than just vegetables.

How it works  Vendors planning to offer a CSA in 2018 will bring their information and sign up sheets to market that day. Posters around market will identify which booths are offering CSAs. Customers may browse, chat with vendors, and gather information to find the CSA that best fit them.

Flower Day

Sunday May 27, 11 am - 4 pm (Memorial Day Weekend). You’ve asked for it and we’re excited to host “Flower Day”. This day is all things FLOWERS AND PLANTS. We are combining with the Sunday Artisan Market to offer a special Flower Day, which will also include food trucks, live music, backyard beekeeping tips, gardening how-to advice from Master Gardeners, kids activities with Triangle Cooperative Pre-school, and tons of fun!

Ann Arbor Farmers Market growers will offer a wide variety of flowers, plants, bulbs, seeds and seedlings at a great value so we recommend you come early for the best selection.
