Farmers Market

The Royal Oak Farmers Market is  open on Saturdays and Sundays.

For other events, please call the market at 248-246-3276.

The Farmers Market remains open because it is important that our community has continued access to the high quality, locally grown, farm fresh products our market provides. The Royal Oak Farmers Market has been supporting our local community for 95 years and will continue to be here for our loyal customers.

We are committed to doing our part in keeping the community and our market patrons safe. Therefore, we will be enforcing a strict no sampling policy, we have asked all our vendors to bring hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes and/or gloves for all or their workers. The Market café will be closed to the public and there will be no seating options available. We will also be suspending the valet parking service until further notice.

In addition, we encourage patrons to limit the handling of any market products as much as possible and to follow safe social distancing and safe hygiene practices as recommended by the CDC. In order to help facilitate safe social distancing our vendor set-up will be slightly reconfigured. Please check in the Market office if you have trouble finding something.

We would also like to stress, if you are sick or in a high-risk group, such as a comprised immunize system, heart disease, diabetic or elderly we strongly advise you to please stay home.
