The Eaton Rapids Saturday Farmer’s Market has been wildly successful at its new location — in the grass lot owned by the DDA, between 114 and 132 Hall Street. As they continue to dial in the market to make it as successful as possible, the DDA has announced new hours for the Saturday market. The market will now be open 9 a.m. to noon.

“We received feedback from our vendors and noticed some market patrons arriving early; and we want to set everyone up for success, so changing the hours made sense,” said DDA/ Main Street Executive Director Jason Smith.

Both markets currently accept senior coupon, and will soon offer acceptance of EBT cards and the FoodBucks programs. The market features produce, herbs, flowers, baked goods, jams and jellies, craft items, eggs and more.

The market runs Wednesdays through September 30 from 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays through September 26 from 9 a.m. to noon. To become a vendor, contact Jason Smith at the Eaton Rapids DDA via phone at 517-663-8118, extension 8157; or via email at
