The Birmingham Farmers Market

The sweet smell of flowers and fresh baked goods will grace Public Parking Lot 6 (located at 660 North Old Woodward next to Cafe Succo) as the market returns for its 16th season. Warming temperatures, live music and comradery among shoppers add to the lively event, which draws thousands each Sunday throughout the season. The market will be open from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. every Sunday from May 6 through October 28.

Children will receive free balloons on Opening Day. There is also a Kids Zone area with a craft provided by Birmingham First, and live entertainment will be performed by The John Patrick Peters Band. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Oakland County Food Policy Council (OCFPC) has launched a county-wide Food System Assessment Survey to gather information about healthy eating habits in Oakland County. The results from this survey will be used to inform a plan to improve access to healthy food options, reduce barriers to food, and find ways to collaborate among partners. Anyone over 18 is invited to participate.

The Food System Assessment Survey is available here and on the ECHO website. In the rotating banner choose Food Policy Council and a link to the Food System Assessment will be on the right side.
