The Farmers Market at Walker Tavern Historic Site is the largest of its kind in southeast Michigan. Here, at the historic crossroads where Sylvester Walker fed weary travelers in the mid 1800s, you'll find more than 50 venders offering fresh produce, baked goods and locally produced crafts.
Make a day of it! Walker Tavern Historic Site is open for tours and, on the Sundays noted below, you can catch the Walker Wheels Base Ball Club in action.
If you are interested in being a vendor at the Farmers Market, please send e-mail to market master David Brainerd at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone him at (517) 467‑7793.
