FLAT ROCK, Mich. – An expanded list of specialty items will be offered when the Flat Rock Farmers Market returns Aug. 2 after a one-year lapse.
The market will reopen in a parking lot at the corner of Arsenal and Gibraltar Rds. one block west of Telegraph Rd. The site is next to the Flat Rock senior citizens’ high rise across from Huroc Park.
Vegetables and fruits from Marks Greenhouse, Milan ¾ bread from Vitale Brothers Bakery in Flat Rock and tea from Teatroiter in Dearborn are some of the items that will be sold by vendors at the first market sale. The market will operate from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each Saturday through Oct. 25, said Joe Pagano, chairman of the Flat Rock Downtown Development Authority, one of the partners in the market that last operated in 2012.
Mr. Pagano said residents are encouraged to support the market that sells food grown by local farmers and products from local businesses and the community.
“You also support yourself by providing healthy and fresh food for you and your family,” he said.
