      Farmers' Markets in the U.P.

      Treasa Sowa grows many types of plants. Garden plants indoors, and produce outdoors.

      As market manager of the Munising Farmers and Artisans Market, she joins in the sale of produce ranging from tomatoes to potatoes to even honey.

      And she says there is much more than that to be found at the market.

      "We have produce, maple syrup, kettle corn, leather goods, jewelry, Henna artist, pottery, some sewn items, woven rugs, jams, jellies, etc." said Sowa.

      There are multiple farmers markets throughout the U.P., too many to list here, but the Munising and Downtown Marquette locations are some of the better known markets.

      The market manager of the Downtown Marquette location says that the people come for more than just the goods being offered. They come for the community atmosphere and the entertainment as well.

      "You're gonna run into people that you see around the community but maybe aren't in your direct neighborhood. So, it's a real nice gathering place. We have music every week. So, it's a place to relax. It's a real nice outing, regardless of your age to come and see what's happening." said market manager Myra Zyburt.

      Regardless of location, farmers' markets tend to stay open throughout the summer and close during the fall before winter.

      The Munising Farmers Market takes place every Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. and the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market is on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
