Throughout the summer, both Tower and Cook have Farmer’s markets. Here is some information on both:
The Tower Farmer’s Market is located in the parking lot of the Train Depot/Civic Center at the west entrance to Tower. It is an easy walk from the public landing on the East Two River channel, so you can access it from the lake. Each Friday vendors offer fresh produce, locally produced meats, baked goods, jam and jellies, and maple syrup, with a few craft items available as well. Vendors must come from within a 50 mile radius of Tower, and all produce must be locally grown. The motto of the Tower Farmer’s Market is “Fresh, local, in-season”.
This year’s Tower Farmer’s Market will begin on Friday, May 21 and run each Friday from 1-4 PM through early fall.
The Cook Area Farmer’s Market is on Saturdays in the City Park in downtown Cook. Only items grown or produced within a 30 mile radius of Cook may be sold. Produce, baked goods, crafts, jams, jellies and more are available.
The start date for the Cook Area Farmer’s Market has not yet been set. Once it begins, it will run Saturdays from 8 AM – noon throughout the summer and into early fall.
You can always check the calendar of events on our website for dates and times for each market.
