Successful 2018 Rally on Ridge

Thank you to all who came out to support the Canton Farmers Market at this year's Rally on Ridge, which was held this past weekend. We couldn't have done it without you! This evening of fun, food, and music was held to benefit the Canton Farmers Market. A portion of the proceeds collected from food vendor sales during this special fundraiser will benefit the Canton Farmers Market, which is currently celebrating its twelfth season.

This year’s Rally on Ridge was sponsored by Edward Jones, Financial Advisor. Our Entertainment was sponsored by Rose Lang Realtor. Additional sponsorship support was provided by the Red Head Salon. 


This Week at the Market

The Canton Farmers Market is a great place to gather. Visiting is a fun family activity, where you can meet members of your community.

Be sure to stop by the Canton Farmers Market this Sunday to stock up on some of your market favorites, such as: baked goods, cheeses, fresh produce and other items you've grown to love. Buying local helps our environment. Shopping at the farmers market cuts down on the travel required to get the food to the grocery store, and reduces waste from the packaging.

Market Vendors Include:

Kapnick Orchards, Pick Michigan, Prochaska Farms, Agricola, Bleaf, Bobilin Honey, Cheesecakes Etc., Golden Wheat Inc, Good Times Kettle Corn, Lula Bre’s Sweet Eats, More…, Simply Gourmet Fresh, Spice Grrrl, The Cheese People of Grand Rapids, Baubles by Barb, Donna Beckerleg, Don’t Worry Bead Happy, Formation Detroit, Goanna Paper Art, Rae Soaps, and Voguebooge.

Please note: vendor listings are tentative and subject to change without notice.
