The outdoor Muskegon Farmers Market is back, and the 2019 season is going to be a whirlwind of food truck rallies, flea markets, retro expos, live music, and, of course, the vendors—of which there will be more than 100 come June and July.
The outdoor farmers market, located at 242 W. Western Ave. in downtown Muskegon, opened May 2, with the first outdoor Saturday market being held Saturday, May 4. The outdoor market is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8am to 2pm through Nov. 30.
“Most of the popular fruits are not yet in season, but shoppers will find plenty of flowers, meats, cheeses, vegetables like lettuce and potatoes, along with honey, bakery items, jewelry, candles, crafts, and much more this Saturday,” Muskegon Farmers Market Manager Michelle Primmer said in a press release. “The beginning of the season shoppers can expect 40 to 50 vendors and during the height of the season in late June and July we will have 100 to 120 vendors. There is something here for everyone.”

The flea market will be held from 8am through 2pm each Wednesday at the farmers market location, and the retro expo—which offers antique furniture, lamps, books, and other vintage items—returns this year on May 19, July 14 and Sept. 15 from 11am to 3pm.
Every Saturday, there will be live music from local musicians, as well as food trucks. And, speaking of food trucks, the Women’s Division Chamber of Commerce and the city of Muskegon are presenting the food truck rallies at the farmers market throughout the summer. The events will feature more than 20 trucks offering a wide range of cuisines and live music from Yard Sale Underwear on June 26, Big Cadillac on July 24, and Let There Be Rock on Aug. 21. Each rally will be held from 5pm to 8pm.
