Despite having to implement new procedures and precautions due to COVID-19, farmers’ markets throughout northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan are in full swing for the 2020 season.

This list of farmers’ markets throughout Michiana is not meant to be a complete list and will be updated periodically.

This list does not include u-pick farms, roadside market stands and stand-alone farm stands. Instead, this is a list of markets that bring together independent vendors to sell their products.

Many of the markets ask that customers wear face masks while shopping, keep a distance of at least 6 feet from others shoppers, and to leave pets at home when visiting the outdoor markets this summer.
