Locally grown

. April 1, 2014.

As asparagus spears and rhubarb shoots breach the spring soil, Ypsilantians take note: the Ypsilanti Farmer's Market and the Saturday Depot Town Farmers Market have returned. Managed by Growing Hope, the markets have increased in both scope and impact every year, with 2014 shaping up to be their biggest year yet. There are many opportunities for Ypsilanti residents to get involved. Make a direct contribution (from $30 to $600) or volunteer time to help the market operate, from passing out samples to helping the vendors set up. Both sponsors and volunteers will receive free Ypsilanti Farmers Market gear for contributing. All donations are tax deductible as a gift to 501c3 nonprofit.

For more information on sponsorship, becoming a Friend of the Market or becoming a vendor, visit growinghope.net.
Begining in May; Downtown on Tuesdays from 2pm – 6pm. Depot Town; Saturdays from 9am – 1pm.
