The Birmingham Farmer’s Market is a chance for the community to gather together and spend some quality time while being entertained by local musicians as they shop for locally grown, fresh produce. It really is a nice way to take in some of the local flavor while filling your fridge with healthy food.
From May to October on Sundays between the hours of 9 am to 2 pm you will find many locals congregate on 660 North Old Woodward – North of Harmon Street, in the Municipal Parking Lot #6 at the Birmingham Farmer’s Market. Opening day was May 7th this year, but don’t worry if you missed it. You can visit anytime as there will be other events coming up. Let’s view some of them.
