The Unconventional Farmers Market

Our mission “To provide locally grown, fresh, high quality produce and products through local farmers, producers, organizations, musicians and artisans as an economic outlet in historic downtown Ortonville.


The tenth season of Beets, Beats & Eats farmers market will again be held in Crossman Park (right behind the Village Pub, next to the Township offices at the corner of Mill and South St.) every Friday night from 6pm until 9pm. Starting June 17th until September 2nd (weather permitting) local vendors, artists and farmers are invited to come be a part for as many nights as they are interested.

Musicians are especially encouraged to come participate! So grab your musical instrument of choice and come on into the park!! We’ll save you a seat!

Last year’s event averaged over 250 people per night and this year looks like it’s going to be very well attended too!!

We still have a few nights available, so if you know of a business or service organization that is interested in being a part of something wonderful, please contact Market Manager Debbie Baker for more information. 

 Meals are always delicious, affordable and fresh, so don’t worry about making dinner on Fridays!!

Don’t forget Hamilton’s Feed & Fuel and Papa Bella’s also sell pop and water at their establishments on Mill Street.

The Beets, Beats & Eats market, a volunteer organization supported by the Ortonville DDA, Village and sponsors, supports and promotes local people and businesses who sell hand-made, home-made products.
