About Us

History

Since July 1974, the Owosso Farmers Market has been providing the local community with the best of what is in season. By offering area farmers, gardeners and artisans makers a place to sell their goods, the Owosso Farmers Market a vital part of our economy as we put money back into all locally owned businesses and farms. Money that comes from our own community empowers us to build more and create a lasting infrastructure!

Our market has proudly grown from a handful of vendors in The Armory parking lot, to now stretching down Exchange street with well over 40 vendors and thousands of shoppers every weekend. The intentional growth along with support from the community has created a one of a kind Farmers Market in Downtown Owosso.

We strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere, for friends and family, to enjoy when visiting the Farmers Market each Saturday. Whether you are searching for just picked produce, locally grown blooms or a Michigan made gift – we’ve got it!
