The Holt Farmers' Market in the old Delhi Twp. Fire Station on Cedar St. in Holt

I’m not sure why, but J has been wanting some squash soup lately.  I needed to make a run to Kroger so I was going to pick up a squash, but for some reason, I remembered that the Holt Farmers’ Market has hours on Thursday so I decided to make two stops and pick up a few things fresh from the farm.

I first visited the Holt Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago.  It’s housed in the old Delhi Township fire house right along Cedar Street.  There’s a nice big parking lot next to it and all of the vendors are inside and out of the elements.  During peak season, there is room to move outside should move vendors sign on.  During the summer, the Market is open Thursday’s from 4-7:30, but today was the last Thursday they are going to be open this year.  From now until December, they are only open on Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm.  Since it was the last Thursday of the year, pickens were slim.

There was only three or four vendors in the main garage area, but those three vendors had almost everything I was looking for.  I went with the mission of finding a butternut squash and honeycrisp apples.  I was 1-for-2 on that mission.  Two of the four vendors had squash and they were the same price.  I didn’t need a big one, so I grabbed what I thought would make enough soup and moved on.  The vendor I bought the squash from also has some meat, butter, and eggs for sale.  I needed all three, but passed for the time being. 

The Holt Farmers’ Market isn’t the biggest market in the area.  They just started up this past July, so it’s understandable that it’s taking some time to get the word out, but what they do have is top notch.  The location is great for us and having a Thursday night market is nice.  Getting up on Saturday and getting moving can be hard for us, so having a couple places to go during the week (Allen Street Market would be the other one) to get produce when we think of it is nice.  Hopefully things pick up and next year’s Holt Farmers’ Market will be bigger.
