MIFMA is proud to announce the return of our annual Farmers Market at the Capitol on September 30, 2021. The mission of the Farmers Markets at the Capitol is to provide a thriving marketplace that showcases Michigan food and agricultural products in an effort to educate our state decision-makers on the importance of supporting farmers, ag-based businesses, and farmers markets.
This market has space for up to approximately 50 vendors who produce and sell Michigan food and farm products. For the purpose of this market, Michigan food and farm products are defined as products grown, raised, or gathered in Michigan or value-added products processed in Michigan that include ingredients grown, raised or gathered in Michigan. Preference will be given to vendors who showcase a majority of Michigan ingredients. Vendors must be MIFMA members in good standing before their application will be reviewed.
Acceptable products vary from fruits and vegetables to artisan cheeses, eggs, meat, sauces, baked goods, apples, cider, donuts, pies, spice rubs, jams, fish, chocolates and caramels, soap, honey, beeswax products, popcorn and kettle corn, maple syrup, dog treats, and cut flowers.
