Your Guide to Shopping the South Haven Farmers Market
Why Shop Local?
Shopping local means you get to know exactly where your food is coming from. Often, the farmers themselves or someone very familiar with the product are at the market. You can ask about what conditions the product was grown in, how it was cared for, and sometimes even sample it to taste the freshness. This is also a great opportunity for networking within the community, or, if you’re just visiting, to find out what the locals here are all about!
Another reason to shop local is to support the community’s economy. It would be hard for small, local farmers to keep nurturing the bounty of the land without economic resources. Every purchase goes toward sustaining the South Haven Farmers Market. The farmers market isn’t the only example of our area supporting local farmers and artisans. South Haven, MI, area restaurants use locally-grown and sourced ingredients whenever possible. Our area also has several shops that sell local artists’ and artisans’ craft.
The Michigan Difference
Farming is an intensive, complex process. First, farmers have to understand the soil in their area, weather patterns, and what product is the best for this specific type of environment. Michigan has many different types of soil, harsh winters, and mild summers. Navigating this landscape and climate takes research, practice, and most importantly, patience. All of this care makes the end result even better.
Hours of Operation and Details
The farmers market is open on Saturdays, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. from May to October as well as Wednesdays from June to August. Most summertime travelers can bet on having two days to visit the market! The market is located Phoenix Street with a parking lot behind Dyckman Park for optimal convenience. However, our resort is only one mile from the market, so you can enjoy our mild temperatures should you decide to walk there!
Once you arrive, browse all of the market’s outdoor booths, meet the vendors, and browse all of the fresh, locally-grown and sourced offerings. Aside from fruits, vegetables, and meats, the South Haven Farmers Market also offers honey curated thanks to local bees, fresh jellies and jams, baked goods, and a wide variety of fresh cut flowers and hanging baskets.
