Farmers Market Oral History

Starting in 2009, its 90th year, the Ann Arbor Farmers Market began collecting the stories of those who have been involved with the Market. They've been conducting oral history interviews with vendors, growers, and customers to help create a portrait of what the Farmers Market is and what it means to the people who visit it. You can be a part of the oral history project by contacting Sarah DeWitt at sdewitt@a2gov.org or by visiting the Farmers Market website.
