Pentwater Farmer’s Market

Pentwater Farmer’s Market

Are you in the market for a Farmer’s Market?

Well, if you’re in Pentwater during summertime, you’re in the right place. Just go to the Village Green on Mondays and Thursdays. The Pentwater Farmer’s Market is held from 10 am to 1 pm, but be forewarned. Stuff sells out, so get there early for the best selection.

Perhaps you are asking yourself, now why would I want to go to the Farmer’s Market? Well, there could be any number of reasons.

For example, let’s say you are going to be with your sweetie. Whether your sweetie is brand new or tried and true – or somewhere in between, you know you want your time together to be special, right?

So, here’s your Farmer’s Market guide to get ready:

1. You want to be clean, don’t you?

There are several vendors which sell homemade soaps and lotions.

2. Next, add to the ambiance with flowers and candles.

These candles are made from bees wax, made from the vendor’s own bees. For extra bonus points, you can also buy honey from this vendor for your honey. How sweet, don’t cha think?

3. To show how classy you are, start out with some wine and cheese.

4. For real points though, bring out the chips and salsa!

6. Top everything off with just a bit of sweet.

There were a number of sweet options at the Farmer’s Market – from homemade pies to cookies to cake pops. These folks captured our business with their winning smiles and their cake pops!

Now, the Farmer’s Market has lots of other offerings. I’ve shown just some of what is there. There are usually vendors with homegrown produce as well as fresh eggs. A community band plays while folks shop. Many vendors have been coming for years; others are new. Some are not there any more. But in all cases, what is sold is local to the area, grown or made by folks who live in the area. And when you’re in Pentwater, what could be better?

At this point, the Farmer’s Market and I have done all we can for you and your big night with your sweetie. The rest is up to you.

Good luck!

  1. Fun post and theme, Betty! We have a Farmers’ Market year round here in the centre space of a mall. It used to be outdoors in the summer, but frequent inclement weather helped them make the decision to permanently move indoors. Because I don’t have a vegetable garden, we really enjoy the fresh produce at this time of year. The local honey and farm chickens are also a wonderful treat. It’s also always fun to visit with the vendors. The Pentwater Market looks like wonderful place to spend a few hours. Your photos are great!

    • Thank you, Terry! For me, it is way easier to buy fresh produce from a local stand or a Farmer’s Market than to try to grow it myself! And yes, visiting with the vendors is fun, too. Hope you have a great day!

  2. I love beeswax candles, and those are spectacular works of art. You did an excellent promo on the market as you usually do–well done. I think I would have to try the asparagus tamale just to find out what it tasted like.

    • One year, a vendor was there selling homemade pasta – including one made from asparagus. I bought it – for my son. Thank you for your comments! I’m doubly blessed today! 🙂

Sometimes I comment twice because there was something I wanted to say,and I forgot it the first time around. 🙂 WP is good at giving us bloggers fits sometimes. Right now, I have to hit enter three times before I get the “add block” sign. Then I have to go back and delete all that space. If you read a post with lots of blank space in it, you’ll know I just gave up. 🙂

    • Yes, I really like those beeswax candles, too. That vendor has been coming for a long time. I have bought most of each type over the years. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. This place sounds pretty cool. I actually stumbled upon a farmer’s market today. Unfortunately, many stands were packing up when we arrived. Pentwater’s looks exceptional.

    • Well, at least you found one! The Pentwater one is nice, but it is only open 10 am to 1. Hopefully, next time you find one, you’ll be able to take advantage of it. Enjoy your day!

    • It’s a Pentwater classic. It’s really not all that big, so it doesn’t take too long to see all the vendors. The fresh produce is good, and I like to see the local products. And there are always sweets. Most years, corn is not available as we are told it is coming in a couple weeks. I think that is God telling us we need to stay longer. 🙂 Hope you have a great day, too!

    • Thank you. I like cake pops because they are sweet – and they are smaller than many desserts. So, I can indulge but just a bit. I also like how they can have so many different looks. Hope you have a great day!

      • Hi. My momma and nieces used to make them. They decorated them and had a lot of fun. She had some kind of cake pop maker. They sound good. I’ve never had them. I ought to see if I could make them gluten free. Small bites do sound better than an entire cake to eat. I don’t *need* a whole cake. Ha ha. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. I’ll be at my pool all day. Soaking up summer.

        • I am not surprised your mom used to make cake pops. I’ve made them a few times – with a kit. I kind of want to get back to it. I don’t need a whole cake either. I don’t even need leftover cake. 🙂 Being at the pool all day sounds great. I have yet to visit our neighborhood pool this year. I better get going on that! I always do enjoy going there. It even has a lazy river. I like summer, too. But I am getting tired of all the heat and looking forward to Fall. Hope you have a great day!

          • There’s a kit? Ooo, I need to get one. My kiddo would love making those! There’s a lazy river? Wow! That sounds nice. Those are very relaxing. Feels like this summer has rushed by. I’m glad we went to Iowa, that seemed to sort of solidify summer time. We went to a water park in Arkansas yesterday. We swam for 3 hours. So fun. Thank you. You, too.

  4. Looks like a really great one. We’ve been disappointed with the farmer’s markets here in Florida. The better ones have a nice variety of things, but nearly all of them are heavier on things non-produce for some reason. Los of handmade goods, art, jewelry, etc. — all nice things to see. But I want a farmer’s market to be primarily fruit and vegetable. – Marty

    • I agree, Marty. I would guess Pentwater has regulations on what the vendors can offer. This is a small, summer town – which doesn’t allow any franchises either. It all adds to Pentwater’s charm. But I do agree, I do like seeing other things for sale – just somewhere else. Have a great Sunday!

  5. Grammi loves farmer’s markets. It is on her search list whenever we roll into a new town. I’m sure if we ever get to Pentwater that will be the first place she’ll want to go.
