Leelanau Farmers Markets

Leelanau Farmers Market

The Leelanau Farmers Markets is a non-profit organization started up with the initiation of the Leelanau Agricultural Alliance & MSU Extension with the goal of improving the marketing of local farm products and preserving county farmland.

The Ag Alliance proposed the idea of starting up Farmer’s Markets in the area in 2000, and with the help of MSU Extension, developed a Board of Directors to oversee the planning and operation of the markets. In 2014, the Leelanau Farmers' Market Association transitioned to an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization.


All products and produce sold at our markets are made or grown within Leelanau, Grand Traverse and Benzie Counties!!  Buy Fresh, Buy Local!!


Our mission is:
"to provide locally produced farm and food products for the benefit of the Leelanau Community."
