MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ) – Gearing up for their 24th season since they started, Marquette’s Farmers Market returns with exciting new changes and additions.
Since 2019, Marquette’s Wednesday Farmers Market has been steadily growing and to help jumpstart its presence even more, Marquette’s Downtown Development Authority are making necessary changes according to Market Manager, Sarah Johnson and she shared, “The biggest change this year is that our Wednesday Market is moving.”
Relocating from Marquette Commons to the 100 block of Washington Street brings many new possibilities and Johnson told us, “We’re really excited, there will be a lot of new vendors at that Wednesday evening market, so different than the Saturday Market and some familiar faces as well.”
Washington Street will be shut down, increasing foot traffic for shoppers to enjoy local businesses and market vendors. Johnson says this also coincides with the new social district that was just recently approved, and she added, “The hope is that not only will folks come down to downtown Marquette on Wednesday evenings to enjoy the market and support local vendors and local businesses, but you will also be able to carry a drink around with you and have a good time.”
And if that wasn’t already enough reason to come and visit the market, they are booking live music for each market date and invite local musicians to apply and help Create the place to be for the Marquette Community and its visitors.
Wednesday Evening Market is open from 5 – 8 pm from June 21-August 30. To learn more about the market and its events or how to apply to be a vendor or music entertainer, please visit here.
