Holiday Farmers’ Market and Tree-Lighting Ceremony

Texas Township to Host Holiday Farmers’ Market and Tree-Lighting on Saturday, November 19

The fourth annual Texas Township Holiday Farmers’ Market and Tree-Lighting Ceremony will spread holiday cheer and good food in Texas Corners on Saturday, November 19 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Joyce I. Neubauer Farmers’ Market Pavilion.

Visitors can shop from more than 30 local farmers’ market vendors selling a wide variety of products, including all of the fresh, seasonal produce that Michigan has to offer this time of year. Even in November, when the days or short and the nights are cold, many farmers are still growing and harvesting fresh vegetables and storing others through the winter months. Shoppers can find produce like apples, potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash, carrots, onions, greens, lettuce, Brussels sprouts, and so much more, as well as baked goods, jams and jellies, sweets, Evergreen wreaths and trees, Michigan wines, and local meats, including beef, pork, lamb, chicken and Great Lakes fish.

This special market is a great place to buy fresh ingredients for Thanksgiving dinners, as well as to purchase holiday gifts, like a market tote filled with Fresh on Q! goodies or a gift certificate to the market. Both are available at the Market Information Table, where shoppers can also find free hot cocoa, hot local cider and locally-roasted coffee, compliments of the Farmers’ Market Committee. The annual Tree-Lighting Ceremony will take place at the center of the pavilion at 6:30 p.m.

The market proudly accepts credit and debit cards, as well as food assistance benefits, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) via the Michigan Bridge Card, plus Double Up Food Bucks. Shoppers can visit the Information Table, located at the east end of the pavilion, to swipe their cards in exchange for tokens to spend at the market or to learn more about these programs.
