About Us

History

The Owosso Farmers Market was founded in July 1974. By offering local growers and makers a place to sell their goods and connecting them with thousands of shoppers every month, the Owosso Farmers Market is a vital part of our economy as we put money back into all locally owned businesses and farms. This empowers us to create a lasting infrastructure for small business growth and sustainable food access in Shiawassee County. 

Our market has proudly grown from a handful of vendors originally setting up in in The Armory parking lot, to now 40+ vendors every weekend! The intentional growth along with support from the community has created a one of a kind Farmers Market in Downtown Owosso.

We are proud to provide a welcoming atmosphere, for friends and family to enjoy while visiting the Farmers Market each Saturday. Whether you are searching for freshly harvest produce, locally grown blooms or a handmade gift – our diverse lineup of vendors will have it!

Our Team

The Owosso Farmers Market is a small business that is female owned and operated. The Market Manager, Josephine Brown, owns a small farm in Owosso and has a background in event production,  design, and marketing. Josephine had been vending at farmers markets around the state for about 10 years before she took over the OFM.

The OFM staff and volunteer team is small but mighty. Each individual is truly passionate about providing a positive impact for our community and are made up market vendors, farmers and local business owners. We like to think of ourselves as more than just people who work for a farmers market. Each member is dedicated to making a meaningful difference to ensure an inclusive community – while providing sustainable food acces. We pride ourselves in entrepreneurial dedication and thoughtful details that go into creating a successful farmers market each season.
