The Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market is known for its fresh fruits and vegetables, and this summer, the Saturday Market will also be known for its fresh, new space!
With the support of Real Food Grows, the 2018 Saturday Farmers’ Market is moving to Michigan Street near the Main Street intersection downtown Mt. Pleasant. Open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays beginning June 30, customers will find a tasty selection of locally-grown foods, colorful plants, homemade baked goods and more.
“Mt. Pleasant Parks and Recreation is excited to bring the Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market to a new downtown spot on Saturdays this summer that is both highly visible and easy for shoppers to access,” said Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market Manager Carol Moody. “We look forward to building on the market’s excellence from the last several years and boosting traffic for local businesses, while making Downtown Mt. Pleasant a vibrant community destination.”
Michigan Street will be closed to traffic one block east of Main Street on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Parking is available in the south west parking lot of Michigan and Main streets.
