Thursday, June 5 from 4-8pm is the Northwest Detroit Farmers’ Market Opening Day!  To celebrate its ninth season and its new location at the North Rosedale Park Community House, 18445 Scarsdale, the Farmers’ Market is pulling out all the stops.  Opening Day will feature an artisans’ market, live music, kids’ activities, and a raffle.  In its new location the Farmers’ Market will have greater access to the many activities occurring at the Community House as well as the beautiful grounds.  Many vendors will return this year as will the health screenings and cooking demonstrations.  New features of this year’s market are yoga and chair stretching, food preservation techniques, chess tournaments, chili cook-offs and Market Books, a lending library where shoppers can take a book, leave a book, or even read a book while they enjoy a snack from one of the food trucks.  Especially for kids are such fun activities as weekly workshops with Home Depot, watermelon seed spitting, and pumpkin bowling!

The Farmers’ Market will run every Thursday from 4-8pm until October 9.  If you have questions about the Farmers’ Market, or would like to volunteer, call Chelsea Neblett at 734-323-2487 or email at
