[ARCHIVED] Celebrate with us at the Farmers Market Birthday Bash!

The Pittsfield Township Farmers Market is celebrating its fifth season with a Birthday Bash on Thursday, August 10th from 3-7 PM at 6201 W. Michigan Avenue, in conjunction with farmers markets across the country in celebrating National Farmers Market Week.

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell will be presenting a Congressional Records Statement in honor of the Market’s fifth year. “When we established the Farmers Market in Pittsfield Township at the corner of Platt and Michigan, we were testing our commitment to convert public spaces into gathering places for our community. With the overwhelming support of local farmers and community members, we have been able to accomplish that goal and provide for both local food access and vibrant public gathering spaces,” noted Supervisor Mandy Grewal.

This birthday market will feature special treats by Finchy Cakes (while supplies last), a birthday-themed scavenger hunt, a kids’ craft, and live music by local musician, Spencer Michaud. Chef Kristi Zebrowski of Grace Savory and Sweet will whip up innovative, healthy recipes that meet dietary restrictions without sacrificing flavor. Chef Kristi uses ingredients from market vendors to teach Market-goers ways to cook local, seasonal ingredients.

The market also offers halal/USDA certified goat meat, pasture-raised meats, farm eggs, organic produce, artisan bread and cheese, prepared vegan and gluten-free Indian cuisine, gourmet baked goods and natural personal care products. The Pittsfield Farmers Market is open 3-7 PM on Thursdays at 6201 W. Michigan Avenue. The market supports Double Up Food Bucks, in which customers can double Bridge Card purchases up to $20 weekly. Additional accepted payment methods include cash, credit card, SNAP/EBT, and Prescription for Health for qualified purchases by select vendors. Check with individual farmers for Project Fresh WIC coupons.
