CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Need something fresh for Mother’s Day? The Knights of Columbus farmers market might have you covered.

The new farmers market will operate on the second Saturday of each month from May until September, running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The first day of the market is May 11, which might be perfect for that last minute Mother’s Day gift. There is no charge for admission.

“I want to bring growth to our community,” said Kim Weston, auxiliary president for Clinton Township’s branch of the Knights of Columbus. “I want to support our local businesses and let people know there are more options than grocery stores. Healthier choices, not as expensive.”

According to a press release, the event will feature food trucks; locally grown produce and plants; jams and jellies; locally raised meats; baked goods; fresh honey; pickles; and local crafters. Heat Street Detroit will offer sauces and Goodfellas Catering will serve up Polish food.

Weston hopes to provide some educational opportunities for those interested in honey production and, at a future market, have the farmer providing meat give insight into farming.

The Lt. Wood – Cpl. Reid Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6691 in Fraser will also have a tent to raise awareness about veterans issues.

Weston said she got the idea when going to a Fraser farmers market. She realized the John F. Kennedy Council 5460 Knights of Columbus had ample space for a market.

“We have this beautiful piece of property, it would be perfect,” Weston said. “We just decided, ‘Yeah, we’re going to go for it.’”

The market will be held at 33320 Kelly Road in Clinton Township. For applications to become a vendor or crafter, contact Kim Weston at
