WELCOME TO THE SARA HARDY DOWNTOWN FARMERS MARKET...ONLINE!
The Traverse City Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has launched an online marketplace for locally grown and produced food from the Sara Hardy Downtown Farmers Market. This online platform makes it possible for farmers to work together to meet the growing demand for local, sustainable food in our region. Farmers benefit from the marketing, selling, packaging and delivering of their produce and prepared foods. The marketplace makes fresh, healthy, locally grown food available to you, the buyer, to order online and pick up on market days in Downtown Traverse City.
Online ordering has switched from Saturday mornings to Wednesday evenings. The new schedule is as follows:
- Thursdays, 12 PM; Ordering opens
- Mondays, 12PM; Ordering closes
- Wednesdays, 4:30 - 7 PM; Customer pickups - no specific time assignments.
