Oakridge kids visit the Muskegon Farmers Market

The Muskegon Farmers Market is always fun, the sea of colors and the delightful smells of area fruits and vegetables bring people to buy from local venders as well as just enjoy the beauty of the bountiful harvest. Today was a real delight as the kindergarten classes from Oakridge schools were on a field trip to the market. The excitement was contagious; I marveled at the variety of gourds and pumpkins with the kids, I took a second look at the wide variety of Michigan apples and winter squash on display and the magnificent array of fall flowers. Today the market was even better than usual as I got a chance to really see the bountiful harvest in the wonder and joy of the kids enthusiasm.

The Farmers Market is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 7am to mid afternoon, May thru November and in December on Saturday only. It is well worth the trip not only for the great produce, but for a real delight of the senses

Saturday the market has expanded vendors, local artisans, bakers, and hobbyist display their wares, breads, pies, birdfeeders, jewelry, art work, cheeses, jerky and smoked fish, as well as local farmers with meat, eggs, and poultry. Make it a family excursion there is something for everyone at the Muskegon Farmers Market.
