MC Farmer’s Market is back and “growing” strong!

April 24, 2018

Many Michigan City residents are anxiously awaiting opening day for the MC Farmer’s Market. Dig the Dunes was excited to sit down with Abigale Thayer, Michigan City’s Special Events and Rec Coordinator, who has spearheaded this project and brought it back to life.

When does the farmer’s market start?
The Farmer’s Market will start May 5th and go through October. It will be on Saturdays from 8am – 1 pm.

Where will it be located?
It’s back in it’s original location on the southeast corner of Washington and 8th Streets, the heart of the Uptown Arts District.

How many vendors will you have?
We will have about 25 full time vendors!

What sorts of vendors will be there?
A lot of familiar faces will be back! We will have produce, flowers, spreads and breads, HONEY, fresh coffee, artisans and so much more!

How will you set yourself apart from other markets?
We are really giving the lot a face lift: new sign, benches, a dog station. (yes! dogs are welcome!) We have an awesome vendor list, the support of the city and the business owners in the Uptown Arts District couldn’t be happier that the Farmers Market is returning! I think overall Michigan City Farmers Market is just going to be a super positive family & dog friendly environment! Grab a coffee from Quality Beet’s tent and shop a fresh, locally produced selection of all the best stuff… What a better place to be on a Saturday morning?

Will there be live music?
Oh yes! Each Saturday from 10am-1pm George Matthew will be performing! Canterbury Theatre will also be showcasing some of their show tunes and talent on select mornings.

What’s the best way to get to the market?
Walk, bike, drive… just get there! We are so centrally located; a ton of people bike or walk. There is ample street parking available as well.

Anything else you’d like to mention?
We are soooooo excited for Michigan City Farmers Market!!! I want to thank our awesome vendors and our INCREDIBLE Market Manager, Kia Bergerson… Come out and show support. See you May 5th!
