How It Started

The Frankenmuth Farmers Market was founded in 2005 by a group of community members with a desire to bring fresh local food to the area.


The Frankenmuth Farmers Market holds that food is a conduit through which communities can come together. That philosophy is what bonds our organization and drives our purpose.

Through the execution of farmers markets over the past 15 years, FFM has rooted itself in the traditions of our rural heritage and provided a base from which our farmers, food producers, and neighbors grow and thrive.

Frankenmuth Farmers Market is a non-profit organization.
