Farmers' Market

Fresh on Q! Farmers' Market

Welcome to the Texas Township Farmers’ Market – “Fresh on Q!” where our community gathers to celebrate fresh, local foods and the rich agricultural diversity of southwest Michigan!

The “Fresh on Q!” Farmers’ Market features up to 35 vendors selling fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, cheeses, breads, pastries and baked goods, potted plants and cut flowers, as well as foods prepared onsite, ready to eat at the market, and more!

The market is located at 7110 West Q Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49009 in the Joyce I. Neubauer Farmers’ Market Pavilion.

Our market exists to create a sense of community for Texas Township and surrounding areas, to promote local businesses and create economic development around foods that are grown, raised, and processed locally, and to raise awareness about the rich and diverse agricultural areas in southwest Michigan.

Save the date for our Holiday Farmers’ Market and Tree-Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m! This special market features complimentary hot cocoa, coffee and local cider, as well as a Tree-Lighting Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. As we enter the holiday season, also consider supporting the Farmers’ Market beyond your usual shopping patronage by making a tax-deductible contribution.
