Holland Farmers Market
The Holland Farmers Market runs every Wednesday and Saturday, May 18th to November 26th, from 8AM to 4PM. Located on 8th St. near downtown Holland and right beside the Holland Civic Center, this is one of the largest farmers markets in the state, with over 50 vendors participating each week.
Holland is surrounded by a number of rural communities, so the huge variety of produce, whether it’s blueberry or asparagus season, is always fresh, local and delicious. The majority of goods sold here are grown right in West Michigan. But produce is only a small part of this farmers market. There’s also flowers and vegetable plants for the garden, baked goods, local honey, spices and herbs, jams and dips, eggs, dairy, meet and even furniture. Organic is available too, with a number of local vendors offering only organic produce and dairy.
The space that houses the Holland Farmers Market is a newly constructed brick paved road with large metal awnings overhead, to keep the market cool when it’s sunny and dry when it rains. Just off the main street there is a small food court offering BBQ, hot dogs and great Mexican fare, especially the tamales.
