Although the projected opening day of the Kalamazoo Farmers Market was previously reported to be May 2nd this year, organizers have decided to delay opening day to June 6th amid COVID-19 concerns. According to a post on their Facebook page, organizers of the popular weekend market, which usually opens in the beginning of May, have said, quote:

After careful consideration, we’ve decided to tentatively reschedule our Opening Day for Saturday, June 6. Please understand that this is a tentative plan and may change. The circumstances around the pandemic have been evolving rapidly, so this date may change as the situation continues to develop. To keep our Vendors, Shoppers and Community safe, we've adapted some new ways of operating that focuses on social distancing and the sale necessary grocery items including fresh produce, bread, meat, cheese, pre-packaged foods meant for at-home consumption, personal hygiene items and pet treats/food.

We know that more than ever supporting our local businesses is of the utmost importance. If you would like to find information on how to support the Kalamazoo Farmers Market vendors, click here.
