Farmer’s Market Vendor Spotlight:  Dutch Farm Market

Post Date: Jun 03, 2022

In the Farmer's Market of the outdoor Shipshewana Flea Market this season you’ll find Dutch Farm Market, out of Michigan, selling a large variety of fresh seasonal produce and local foods.

We met Roger (resembling a superhero here), one of the nicest and friendliest produce selling guys you’ll meet. He shared a lot of knowledge about Dutch Farm Market (a local Michigan business) and what they have to offer Shipshewana Flea Market shoppers this season.

Local Produce

Dutch Farm Market has a variety of produce that is fresh for the season. For shoppers getting ready to make their plans, we will have local fresh picked asparagus and rhubarb as of late May.

Picking Up Your Produce in the Farmer's Market

The Farmer's Market vendors can hold your purchases for you and then help you pull right into the market to load them up. So you definitely want to take advantage of that on the east side of the market. Real easy kind of a U-turn through the farmer's market itself.

By late June, we transition into local fresh picked cherries and strawberries and on into July. From that point on, it will be all fresh and many, many different produce products.

We’ll then be heavily stocked with peaches and apples as we head into the fall, with peaches as early as the last week of July.

Other Local Foods

We also have our honey and syrup from Michigan, made right on the farm, another local food product.

What about those Peaches?

OK, so a lot of people ask, when are the fresh peaches from Michigan coming to Shipshewana Flea Market? You heard it here, the last part of July.

Easy Fresh Market Peach Streusel
