WELCOME TO THE SARA HARDY DOWNTOWN FARMERS MARKET... ONLINE!
The Traverse City Downtown Development Authority (DDA) now hosts an online marketplace for locally grown and produced food from the Sara Hardy Downtown Farmers Market.

From May to October online order pickups will be on Wednesday afternoons at parking lot B off of Grandview, Bags are generously provided by Burritt's Fresh Markets, and Oryana Community Co-op who are both open for shopping on Wednesday afternoons.

PICK UP PROCESS FOR CUSTOMERS:
When you arrive at the parking lot B you may pull up in front of the white tent. A market representative will take your name and pull your order. Please be prepared to verify that all items in your order are correct, as we cannot fix an error after you leave.
For those using food assistance programs, please be sure that you have enough cash to cover the entire order or the admount of the order your food assistance programs cannot. Please keep in mind the eligibility of products for certain food assistance programs. (i.e. EBT - all edible items, Double Up Food Bucks - only fresh fruits and vegetables).
At this time, delivery/shipping options are not available.
If for some reason you are not able to pick up your order, please contact the Market Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 24 hours in advance.
