Farmer’s Market season is in full swing and is one of our favorite aspects of summertime. Nothing beats local, farm-sourced produce and products from local businesses. The money goes directly back into the local economy, so you can feel good about shopping at your community farmer’s market.
To highlight the people and businesses putting these on, we wanted to tell our residents about farmer’s markets happening right here in the Dearborn area. From local vegetables, meats, and fruits, to cheeses, baked goods, soaps, candles, and more, these are the best local markets!

Patrons can visit hand-picked vendors selling only seasonal, local, Michigan-based farm products and goods. Items range from local produce to flowers, soaps, jewelry, pottery, and more.
You can feel good knowing that your food and goods came from your own communities, for fresh, healthy meals. There are cooking demos, live music and entertainment, yoga, food trucks, and other fun happenings for everyone.

Since 2007, Lincoln Park has offered local residents Wayne County’s first Sunday farmer’s market. It is run by a Michigan nonprofit called Friends of Lincoln Park Farmer’s Market. Farmers from Wayne, Monroe, and Washtenaw counties participate in bringing our residents the freshest local produce and plants. There are events such as plant swaps, senior days, Christmas in July, health and wellness events, and more.
You’ll also find specialty items such as pies, jewelry, soy candles, woodwork, crochet, and other unique items. Come see why
Besides these two fantastic markets, there are many others throughout the Detroit metro area. So if Friday or Sunday do not work for you, be sure to check out the other markets!
