The Saturday morning market, the Ypsilanti Depot Town Farmers Market, is held next to the Freighthouse at 100 Rice St in Depot Town from 9am - 1pm from May - October.
The Ypsilanti Farmers Market - Depot Town is run by Growing Hope and aims to increase access to fresh and healthy food while supporting our local economy and developing our community.
We have around 40 vendors, selling a large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, breads and baked goods, cheese, meat, plants and seedlings, soaps, laundry detergent, and other homemade crafts and jewelry. We ask of our vendors that all the products they sell be grown or made in Michigan.
We accept many forms of payment at the market including; Cash, EBT/SNAP/Bridge Card, Double Up Food Bucks, Credit/Debit, Prescription for Health, WIC Project FRESH, Senior Market FRESH/Project FRESH, Market Dollars, and Hoophouses for Health. Stop by our Healthy Communities tent to swipe your card and get tokens to spend, or to ask questions and get health information!
Growing Hope founded the Downtown Ypsilanti Farmers Market in 2006, and took over management of the Depot Town Farmers Market in 2013.
