2017 event: Opening Day noon Friday, June 2 @ Sheridan Center, Heritage Park
Runs Fridays, noon-7 p.m. through September
The Taylor Farmer's Market was the largest market of its kind in the Downriver region. It is also the only market held under a roof -- the 41,000-square-foot Sheridan Center Open-Air Pavilion in Heritage Park. The Sheridan Center has ample parking directly in front of the building and admission to the market is free. Vendors have their own parking area on the north side of the building, adjacent to the loading door. Restrooms are available inside the center.
While vendors vary, the market offers an array of items, from fresh produce to homemade honey, jams and spices and condiments. Various lunch vendors like the wildly popular Evie's Tamalas make the market is a great place to go for lunch. Patrons can grab lunch and enjoy the summer weather from inside the pavilion in a very homey atmosphere.
Beaumont (previous Oakwood) has been a great partner of the market, and offers its popular "Walk with a Doc" program on selected Fridays at noon. A Beaumont doctor attends, discusses a specific health issue and then leads a walk through Heritage Park.
Theme days are also very popular at the market, and vary from baseball to holidays. A drawing is held each week for a lucky "Kimber's Kreation" gift basket, made up of all-farm-market items!
