Letters to the editor
To the editor;
On behalf of the Frankenmuth Farmers Market, a huge thank you to the Frankenmuth community for supporting YOUR market. A special shout out to Jerry Kabat for the use of his beautiful new wagon, featuring many scenes of Frankenmuth. We saw many faithful customers and were delighted to see many new faces enjoying the market for the first time. Opening day at our new permanent location was a huge success. We had eight new vendors plus many of the regulars you come to see. There were beautiful flowers, heritage tomato and pepper plants, pies, twig furniture, jams, teas, lettuces, ramps, rhubarb, micro greens, herbs, meats and cheese and more. If you don’t know what some of those things are – come to the market and you will be educated. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, and your kind words of support and being there for us meant so much to the Market and the vendors. Please plan to visit each Saturday from 9am-1pm and Wednesdays beginning June 3 from 3-6pm. Parking for the market is best accessed from Franklin St. via Koester Drive near the Frankenmuth Credit Union. If you didn’t see what you wanted, it might not be in season yet, but with the great variety of vendors, everyone is sure to find something.
