The City of Sterling Heights is enthusiastically prepping for its fifth year of the Dodge Park Farmers Market (DPFM), a fun-filled Thursday event that brings fresh produce and organic fare to the Sterling Heights Dodge Park Farmers Market pavilion.
The market will begin on June 6 and run from 3 to 8 p.m. every Thursday through the end of September (with the exception of Sterlingfest week July 21). Market attendees can expect to see fresh fruits, vegetables, artisan crafts and food throughout the season. Residents interested in receiving weekly email updates about the market can sign-up by going to the City’s website, sterling-heights.net and clicking “Notify Me” to choose the DPFM listserv.
Additionally, each week will have children’s corner activities sponsored by local partners, food trucks, and live music at the market. During the months of June, July and August, the Music in the Park Summer Concert Series will be taking place simultaneously from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Dodge Park Amphitheatre.
Sterling Heights Mayor Michael C. Taylor said the City is proud to bring back what has quickly become a staple summer event for Sterling Heights.
“The feedback for the Dodge Park Farmers Market continues to be incredibly positive, so we have expectations that this year’s market will be even more successful,” Taylor said. “I know I’ll be bringing my family out to the market as often as I can to take advantage of locally sourced produce as well as the wonderful atmosphere.”
