About the Market
The Ada Farmers Market currently operates under the umbrella of the Ada Township and is overseen by the Ada Downtown Development Authority Board. It began from handful of plucky vendors in 2009 and is now more than 35 seasonal and weekly vendors strong today. The Ada Farmers Market continues to develop its broad selection of West Michigan’s locally-grown farm produce, including vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, breads and flowers.
We are the only West Michigan market to offer a chef preparing fresh farm foods on site during the height of the season. For eight weeks, shoppers can watch a professional prep, cook and serve a sample of dishes they prepare, with ingredients from vendors at the Market. Ada Marketeers love this event, where they can ask any question about cooking, preparing and storing foods from a trusted source.
Buying from our vendors couldn’t be easier. Cash is gladly accepted, of course! The Market also accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and EBT/Bridge cards in exchange for market tokens. Tokens are accepted by all vendors. We also participate in the Fair Food Network’s Double Up Food Bucks program.
The unique atmosphere and high quality has been recognized by the community and in 2012 the Ada Farmers Market received the Silver Townie Award for “Best Farmer’s Market” from On-the-Town magazine’s readers. We couldn’t be more thrilled with these recommendations from local shoppers. We will continue to use these high standards to make your visit to our market even more convenient, healthy and fun.
The 2016 season will open on Tuesday, June 7th and stay open every Tuesday each week until October 25th. Mark your calendar, and…see you at the Market!
