Indoor restrooms are available in the Cobblestone Farm barn until 5pm. After 5pm, there is a port-a-potty available in Buhr Park.
The market is a wonderful place for kids to play. We are in a park, so please dress for the outdoors. On sunny days, bring sunscreen, hat and water for drinking (we have a water cooler to refill bottles). On really hot days, we sometimes hook up the sprinkler, so consider bringing a bathing suit.
Walking or biking to the market is fun! Parking for bicycles is available and for suggested bike routes, see the City of Ann Arbor bike map. If you take the bus, AATA route #7 stops in front of Buhr Park. Cars can enter off of Packard Road, and ample parking is available Buhr Park.
Vendors accept cash and some accept checks. At this time, we do not have the technology to accept credit cards or debit cards.
We apologize in advance to our neighbors and their furry pets - the Michigan Department of Agriculture prohibit pets at Farmers' Markets. We do have a dog parking area with water and treats for you to leash your pet while you shop.
Thank you for not Smoking. Although the market is outdoors, smoking is not permitted at Farmers Markets, per Michigan Health Department regulations.
Please help Cobblestone Farm Market become a Zero Waste Earth Market by bringing your own reusable bags, water bottles, utensils and food containers. There are no trash receptacles within the market grounds.
Check the weather:
The market will be cancelled if there are severe thunderstorms in the area. It will remain open in spite of heat (the market is largely in the shade). For up to date information, check Facebook.
