You've been waiting for it and can almost taste the goodness.
The popular Wyandotte Farmers Market, now in its fifth year, returns to the corner of First and Elm Streets Thursday, The News Herald reports. The market runs from noon to 6:30 p.m. weekly through August, offering an open air venue for the purchase of fresh foods, including produce, plants, herbs, dairy products, eggs, lamb, pasta and more.
Programs and other events make the Farmers Market educational as well as fun.
At Thursday’s opening market, kids ages 5-12 can register for the free Power of Produce program that is designed to help them make healthy food choices. Participating kids get tokens that can be redeemed for fresh produce each week.
Enrollment is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Key sponsors of the Power of Produce are Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital, Leo Stevenson & Merrill Lynch, and Trinity Lutheran Church of Wyandotte. Other sponsors include Mayor Joseph Peterson, Gee & Missler, Wyandotte Rotary and Success Unlimited.
Also Thursday, a raised garden bed raffle will be held, and make-and-take craft activities will be held for the kids.
