I have been to many farmers market but this was one of my favorite. Very comparable to the farmer's market in Golden CO. it was a great way to spend a Sat morning. There was a huge variety and nicely organized. The only bad thing was traveling back home to Illinois that day without a cooler so I could not... More

I love taking my family here on Sat mornings. We browse the many vendors, purchasing fresh fruit and veggies, as well as herbs and flowers. We also can buy a lot of our meats from local places that taste so much better than grocery store meats. You do need to get their early if you want to be get popular... More

Take some extra time to find a parking space because the Kalamazoo Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings on Bank Street, just south of downtown, is becoming one of the most popular spots in the area. And even compared to markets in other cities we have traveled to, this one wins hands down. The best of local organic farming, natural products,... More

Then prices went up, quality down., fewer old friends went. fewer shoppers meant , some venders stopped coming , or raised prices to make up for reduced... More

This is a first class Farmers Market. You can find everything "in season" there. There is produce, obviously, but also food to eat, music to listen to, smiling faces, flowers, herbs, plants, dog biscuits, bread, home made soap and deodorant and so much more. Much - but not all the produce - is grown organically, even if they are not... More

We love going there all summer long. You will find lots of locally grown fruits, vegetables plus flowers and plants. We enjoy the live entertainment and the variety of vendors where you can grab a bite for lunch. My only disappointment is that many market items (fruits and vegetables) are from out of state but I avoid those booths completely.... More

Parking is challenging, the location is out of the way, the market has outgrown its space, but it is still the best Farmers' Market in Michigan by far for variety, diversity, and its emphasis on local and/or organic fruits and veggies as well as a huge variety of locally made foods. I have visited over a dozen other markets and... More

If you are looking for an authentic farmers market, this is the one! Tremendous variety, all local, excellent quality - this decades-old market is buried in the sidestreets of Kalamazoo, and can be a challenge jammed on for non-locals to find. But once you locate it, you'll be glad you did. Be sure to bring your appetite. There's local food... More

There are some new artisans and vendors at the market that we flock to every Saturday. There is Cheri Chocolates who sells crispy chocolate covered bacon with pralined pecans sprinkled on top. She makes turtles, too, and my mother buys a weekly dose. When the fruit was slow to harvest, a farmer from North Carolina, a sweet short lady with... More
