Become a Friend of the Markets By becoming a Friend of the Ypsilanti Farmers Markets, you’ll be making a direct contribution to the markets’ continued success. Two-thirds of the cost to run our Farmers Markets comes from individual donations. When you become a Friend of the Markets your support lasts for one year after your sign up. It’s never too late, and Friends of the Market memberships make a great gift to that special someone who loves the Ypsilanti Farmers Markets. You can get great swag too, like t-shirts, stickers, and more! Email to learn more.
Donate to the Completion of the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace Creating year-round local food access is our top priority and the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace will do just that. We have reclaimed an unused warehouse in Downtown Ypsilanti and a former driver-thru bank on Washington Street and begun the crucial work of bringing this space to life. A year round market will multiply the economic and health impacts for Ypsilanti residents. The demand for healthy local food is high, but we are limited by the capacity of an outdoor space, shortened season and weather disruptions. Donate to the Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace today!
Donate Stock! Did you know that we accept gifts of stock? Contact for more information and to make your tax-deductible gift today! When you give, you are part of helping to empower local communities to access, grow, and eat healthy food. Together we are revitalizing neighborhoods and teaching one another the beauty and hope that comes from nurturing soil, seeds and self. We believe that healthy food is a basic human right, and your support helps make it a reality for people in Ypsilanti and beyond.
Thank you for helping us GROW!
