Wayne State University Farmers Market

Posted: 06/07/16

Looking for fresh foods during the week and can’t make it to Eastern Market? Head over to Wayne State University’s 9th Annual WSU Farmers Market. The market is supported by SEED Wayne and the Wayne State
University’ College of Liberal, Arts and Science. As one of the most anticipated signs of summer in the city, the market is the result of a unique set of partnerships and community collaborations to create a space where good food, healthy lifestyle activities and community create a healthier community.

The market will feature seasonal produce, including salad greens, herbs, cut flowers, berries, and transplants, as well as breads and other baked goods, hot and cold lunches, and coffee, tea and popcorn. Detroit-based growers such as D-Town Farm, Brother Nature, and Greening of Detroit will return as will anchor produce vendor Van Houtte Farms of Armada, Michigan. Local favorites such as Avalon Bakery, Sweet Potato Sensations, and Mystic Kettle will continue to offer their staples of breads, cupcakes, and popcorn. This year Tech Town program graduate, Drifter will sell their signature coffees. Salads, wraps and panini will be sold on-site from Russell Street Deli or Brooklyn Street Local.

The Market accepts cash, Bridge Card, Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB), WIC Project FRESH & (Senior) Market FRESH benefits. DUFB matches Bridge Card spending at the Market dollar for dollar on fresh produce, up to
$20 per person per day. This year the Market will feature special activities such as chef demos, nutrition and healthy diets tabling, yoga, hula-hooping, and more thanks in part to partnerships with community based organizations and a variety of campus departments.

The Wayne State Farmers Market is made possible by support from University Libraries, Office of Campus Sustainability, Wayne State Police, College of Fine, Performing, and Communication Arts, and many other campus and community partners. The market opened on June 1 and will run Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., now through October 26. The Market is located at 5401 Cass Avenue, in front of the Reuther Library and across from the Community Arts Building. For more information please visit  www.clas.wayne.edu/seedwayne or call
