CSA Farm S​h​​ares

​​A CSA, or '"community supported agriculture," is a subscription or farm membership to receive produce or farm products on a regular basis. The customer usually gets a weekly share of the farm's produce or other products. Several vendors offer CSA programs, so it's easy to find a program that's right for you: CSA Info 2023​ (PDF).​

City of Ann Arbor Workplace CSA ​​Program​​

2023 weekly CSA distribution for Ann Arbor City Employees will take place at Wednesday Market June – October, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Fo​​ur Ann Arbor Farmers Market farms will be participating this year. Employees will find more information to sign up for their shares here: City of Ann Arbor Workplace CSA.



Market O​​perating Rul​​es

​All vendors and patrons of the market must abide by the Public Market Operating Rules​ (PDF). We have recently updated our rules for 2023.

Public Market Advisory Commission

​The Public Market Advisory Commission (PMAC) serves in an advisory capacity for the benefit of the market. PMAC is made up of two market vendors, two regular customers and one neighborhood representative. Commission meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. All regular meetings and ​​work sessions are open to the public and will take place virtually in 2023. The latest meeting agendas and minutes, as well as the video recordings of previous PMAC​ meetings, are all available online. ​​

Market Infrastructure Improvem​ent Project

Proposed improvements focus on strategies to winterize the market to expand vendor stall capacity all year. The project is intended to serve the community as the market evolves and continues to provide a critical outlet for local food. In spring 2017, a proposal for a new market building was put out for bid and came back over budget. Consequently, staff searched for alternatives that were more affordable. In early 2020, Market staff presented a proposal for roll down sides to provide shelter from the elements and overhead heating. That design keeps the existing layout without eliminating parking and could potentially expand to the entire structure in the future. Due to pandemic-related increases in materials costs and A2Zero energy-use constraints, it is unclear if the 2020 proposal is currently feasible. Market staff continues to explore alternative options to complete this market winterization project. ​​​
