The Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission assumed management and operation of the Oakland County Market on June 2, 2012. The venue features a Farmers Market and Flea Market, operating four days a week.
Established in 1953, the market welcomes more than 300,000 visitors annually. The venue is a mainstay for providing grower-direct fresh produce and flowers to county residents and visitors.
The market is operated as a producer-direct venue, requiring all vendors to grow or produce the goods they sell. The 14-acre market site consists of a 7,453-square-foot building with 38 indoor stalls, 32 outdoor stalls under a canopy, 20 non-sheltered stalls, parking for 268 vehicles, an orchard and adjacent woodlot. In 2011, vendors leased 137 spaces.
The market is open from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. year-round on specified days.
Please Note: Not all vendors participate in the market year-round; many are seasonal.
