Imlay City Farmers Market
The Imlay City Farmers Market is Farm Fresh and Locally Grown!
Our local farmers market operates in Downtown Imlay City on the corner of Third and Main Streets, across the street from the post office.
In 2021, we are offering TWO market days:
- THURSDAYS, 10 AM - 4 PM, is our Regular Season Market. Our Regular Season Market will be open for 23 weeks, opening on May 20th through October 28th.
- TUESDAYS, 2 PM - 7 PM, is our Evening Season Market. This market day and time is NEW this year, and as such is trial-mode, only running for 11 weeks. Our Evening Season Market is open June 8th through August 31st (closed July 6 and July 27) and will operate in conjunction with our Summer Concert Series located around the corner.
There will be no Evening Market held on 5th or July 26th!
