Any Michigander knows how season changes can affect our daily lives; driving techniques, fashion choices, and even what we eat changes with the seasons. That being said you can still find fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers markets as the leaves begin to fall. So as we transition from the hot summer days to the crisp fall afternoon, check out these farmers markets in the D. 

Market on the Green

Held on the Franklin Village Green, Market on the Green looks to offer fresh products through the end of October. The market is open every Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. with local vendors selling what is fresh and in-season. It’s also a great spot to pick out pumpkins come Halloween season.
