The winter Saline Farmers Market is located at Liberty School on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon until the last week of April. After that, the market moves outdoors.

 

At the market you will find an array of local fresh produce and specialty items such as baked goods, jams, honey, candles, crafts and much more.

 

Dave from Dave’s Honey has been bee keeping for over 45 years and is the only commercial bee keeper in Saline. He promotes recycling by offering $1 off of honey refills when you come to the market and refill your honey.

 

Dave thinks his honey sets him apart from the rest because he offers “a really unique type of honey. It’s a blend of clover and wildflower, it makes a real pure type honey.”

 

Dave also sells bees wax, bee pollen, honey sticks and cinnamon. 

 

You will also find vendors like John from The Boulevard Market in Tecumseh who makes Peppalo Stone Ground Chocolate. This type of chocolate is referred to as “bean to bar.” The chocolate is made from start to finish with minimal ingredients.

 

John also sells Black Pig Salami and states that they are “the only licensed producer of fermented dry cured salami in Michigan.”

 

Other vendors include the local Ed’s Bread, Kapnick Orchard, and Floe’s Bakery.

 

Future events at the Farmers Market include a Kombucha workshop with Unity Vibration on March 31. The market also offers cooking demonstrations with Jeff from Respectful Living and Indian dishes from Earthen Jar.

 

The summer Farmers Market will move Downtown Saline off South Ann Arbor Street starting the first Saturday in May. This market starts at 8 a.m. and runs until noon.

 

The Tuesday afternoon Farmers Market at Rentschler Farm Museum has been canceled this year due to “lack of community support,” said the market manager Christine Easley.
