Market Events

IN ADHERANCE TO CDC COVID-19 GUIDELINES, the Market has eliminated, for the duration of social distancing, all non-essential areas and activities that attract lingering or close contact in the Market, such as music, seating/eating areas, special events and children’s activities, product sampling and cooking demonstrations.

The Eastern Ingham Farmers Market offers many events for market attendees each over the course of the Market season.

Two of these occur during weekly Market hours (Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. throughout the season (May 19-October 13). These include musical performances at the Spotted Goat canopy (with tables and chairs for those who want to relax and kick back) and market-related children’s activities at the Seedlings and Sprouts booth.
