About
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, City Market is strongly focused on bringing local, farm-fresh, healthy options to the community—thus addressing the “food desert” or non-existence of quality grocery and produce in Downtown Bay City. We truly believe in supporting local farmers and knowing where food comes from! City Market also provides the community with a few places to get quality treats and snacks, as well as Michigan-themed products including clothing and crafts.

Had loved it, disappointed this time around
Feb 2021 • Solo
I was so excited to hear about this place several years ago. In 2018 went when in town and enjoyed all the little vendors, got a coffee. Some bar bq at a little restaraunt in there and my sister and I even happened upon a cooking class...watching a chef do a fantastic preparation of herb encrusted rack of lamb....enjoyed so much so that I bought a rack of lamb at a meat vendor in city market and made the dish myself, at home....that was then. I was in town recently and went back, hoping for the same experience. This time I found most of the vendors gone, mostly replaced by making the place seemingly a basic grocery store. I was disappointed and wondered how much the pandemic has had to do w small vendors struggling? I hope perhaps maybe some of the magic from my earlier visit returns.

Not the same...

This is now like a grocery store that's over priced. Really enjoyed the old version with different vendors.

Pleasantly surprised
Aug 2019
I did not even know about the City Market. I was in Bay City meeting a friend for lunch. And we were within walking distance of the Market. Something for everyone. The smells of the fresh baked goods, mixed with the smells of the coffee, topped off with the smell of the fresh baked pizza. And everyone there was so friendly. I will be going back.

Different shopping concept for Bay City
Jun 2017 • Couples
City Market is composed of about 20 small stalls each selling there own different item. No two shops alike. You can get BBQ food, Mexican, fruit smoothies, baked goods, etc. a bit pricey but still a nice place. You can easily walk through the whole thing stopping at each stand in 20 minutes or less.

Stopped here to walk around. Had some very good little shops. Fresh produce and meats. Couple restaurants or food vendors. And even a winery which I’ll review as well. Cookies and cheesecake s little bit of everything.

Lots of unique shops. Personally I don't get into this kind of shops. But it was busy. Some may like it more than me.

aimed to be a year-round farmers market, this facility provide much needed space, a teaching kitchen and convenient parking around the building. it is also walking distance to the riverside, so drop by to take a look.

Nice variety...
Aug 2018 • Solo
This is a nice sized market; in downtown Bay City, across from the Wirt library. (It is closed Sunday & Monday).
The facility is clean and well maintained; with a wide variety of options from which to choose. The staff/owners were friendly and accommodating.
There are vendors for BBQ, pizza, coffee, cookies, desserts, flowers, meats, produce etc., etc...
One can snack/eat there; and/or take out for later consumption.
All and all; an interesting place to visit, if one is exploring the downtown area.

Very fresh!
Aug 2018
We visited the Market not sure what to expect. When we walked in the front doors we were immediately impressed with fresh produce and cleanliness. The entire market was spotless. There were amazing looking cookies and baked goods. There was a section with a childrens story hour going on and all the kids seemed well engaged. There were several places to eat lunch and a nice coffee shop. There was even a wine tasting section! Several little shop areas had organic food products, fresh teas and even a higher end essential oils distributer. There was also nice seating areas just to catch up with nice conversations with friends (both inside and out). It is a very nice add to Bay City’s Downtown area. Please know it is closed Sunday and Monday.
