This weekend in the Ann Arbor parks

Year-Round Winter Market
Grab a hot cup of coffee, cider or even hot chocolate on these cold days and shop local with us all winter long. We have apples, squash, greens like lettuce and spinach, carrots, rutabaga, potatoes and root veggies. Plus artisan products, bread and croissants, chicken, pierogis, kielbasa, honey and lots more. Free parking in the market lot during market hours. It’s restaurant week beginning Jan. 13 so think about supporting a restaurant that buys from some of our farmers. Miss Kim’s, Zingerman’s, Grange, The Lunch Room, Detroit Filling Station, Spencer, Pacific Rim, Gratzi, Sava’s, Silvio’s, Fresh Forage and HOMES Brewery are a few that make an effort to purchase local. 315 Detroit St.
