Every Wednesday right through October, the Chelsea Farmers Market will be open in the Chelsea State Bank parking lot, located at 1010 S. Main St., near the corner of Old US-12 and M-52.

The market runs from 1-5 p.m.

There are a huge variety of plants for sale-herbs, perennials, annuals, and vegetables. You’ll also find fresh asparagus and salad greens and other fresh produce.

Cheese, jam, and honey will be for sale as well as baked goods.

You’ll also find pottery, jewelry, birdhouses.

Everyone who enters the market must wear a mask, and there will be masks available for those who don’t have one. Vendors, volunteers, and market staff are also required to wear a mask.

Market Manager Emily Griswold asks anyone with any sign of illness to please stay home.

  • Everyone is asked to practice social distancing of 6-10 feet and not to linger.
  • Shoppers will be asked to follow one-way pedestrian traffic signs using one entrance and one exit.
  • Shoppers are asked not to touch or sample products, and vendors will choose and bag items.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to go to the market’s website: or to check for updates on social media.

For anyone who prefers to order online, that option will continue for Saturday pickup only. Just go to and click on the Open Food Online Network to shop. Orders can be picked up Saturdays at Palmer Commons between 10 a.m.-noon.
