Beaumont Farmers Markets Are Growing

Beaumont Farmers MarketThursday, June 13 marks the sixth anniversary of Beaumont, Royal Oak’s Farmers Market. The growing success of the farmers market has been a joy to watch over the past few years. Our market has attracted more shoppers, vendors and a greater variety of goods each year and 2013 will be no different.

Taking place each Thursday (through October) outside the South Tower entrance, the Beaumont market has a diverse group of products and vendors – from fresh produce to homemade desserts to bath and body products and much more. The market is open to visitors, patients, Beaumont employees and the entire community.

Starting tomorrow, Beaumont Hospital, Troy will host their first farmers market as well. Every Tuesday through October, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., join vendors on the ground level outside of the parking deck (under the covered walkway).

Currently in season are a variety of leafy greens, herbs, asparagus, snap peas and hydroponically-grown tomatoes. If you’re looking for lunch, Ned’s TravelBurger food truck will be back and if you’re just looking for a quick snack, Mystic Kettle will be popping fresh kettle corn at each market.

Beaumont market master, Eileen Miskiewicz, believes local farmers markets are growing in popularity because customers want to support local farms and businesses. “There is also a strong movement of consumers who want to know where their food comes from as well as who grows and/or prepares it,” she added.

The marketplace is completely covered, so people can shop rain or shine.  We are also a barrier-free market with free and ample parking nearby.

Each week we’ll feature one of our vendors on the blog. Stay tuned to learn more about these great local products and vendors.

    Are there any plans to have organic vegetables at our Royal Oak Farmers Market? I really enjoy the fresh produce at our market, organic would be even better!

  5. How do you become a vendor at the Farmers market? Do you have year round vendors indoors? Thank you 🙂
