If you’ve ever strolled through the northern end of Ann Arbor’s downtown business district, it’s probable that you have found yourself in the beautiful, historic neighborhood of Kerrytown. Whether you’re drawn in by Argiero’s airy patio with its string-lighting, or the specialty shops that line the brick-laden streets – Campus Information Centers suggest another attraction for your roaming pleasure: The Farmer’s Market
The Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market is located across from Community High School, under the weather structures before Sparrow’s Market and Sweetwater’s Coffee and Tea. The Farmer’s Market offers artisan products and crafts, prepared foods, fresh local produce, as well as an array of plants and other goodies from over 160 local vendors every Wednesday and Saturday from 7am-3pm (May-December). If you’re worried about parking or pedestrian congestion, we advise arriving early or parking in the residential areas for a more stress-free arrival. If you eventually tire of the plurality of products offered at the open-air market, the surrounding shops, restaurants, and coffee houses offer some relief. Our
sources have contested that while the best produce selection exists within the upcoming warmer months, the baked goods and greenery selections will have you strolling back to this 90-year Kerrytown native year-round.
