MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette Farmers Market is opening for the 2017 season Saturday.
More than 50 independently owned businesses will be selling their products.
The market is part of Michigan's Market Fresh and Project Fresh programs for children and seniors, and SNAP benefit users will once again be able to use the double up card for purchases of fresh produce.
Available at the market are things like syrup, art pieces, meats and freshly grown produce.
"There'll be lots of fresh food because of those hoop houses and greenhouses, there will be lots of the fresh country greens that we are all waiting for, spinach and lettuce," market manager Myra Zyburt said. "There will be kale and radishes, asparagus is starting to come up, for sure all of that and probably lots of other things as well,"
The market will be open from 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. and unless the weather is really bad, the vendors will be in the half acre lot behind the Marquette Commons.
