The Summer Market, formerly known as the Dearborn Farmers and Artisans Market, managed by the West Downtown Dearborn Development Authority (WDDDA), affirms Dearborn’s commitment to the community and local businesses with the help of a dedicated Business Services Team from the City’s Economic Development Department. The market will be open on the following dates throughout the 2024 season:

  • July 12
  • Aug. 9

Director of Economic Development Jordan Twardy, stated, “The Dearborn Summer Market is a local favorite and is more than just a food and artisanal market. It's a community-building event that brings residents and visitors together.”

Having been a staple in Dearborn for over ten years, the Dearborn Summer Market provides a community gathering space while bolstering small businesses and entrepreneurs.

This year, the market will feature seasonal, local, Michigan-made products and goods, bakeries, non-profit and community organizations, and more. Continuing in its traditions, the market will also offer classes, workshops, and educational activities for participants of all ages. This year, the market will showcase a mix of traditional, new, and exciting events and activities for the summer months. Special children's events and musical performances will provide entertainment for the whole family.

Twardy continued, “We are proud to partner with our event sponsors to bring this cherished summer tradition to Dearborn. Thanks to our partners, we are able to provide enriching programs and options to our community; support entrepreneurs; and bring awareness to the countless benefits of access to local products and supporting small business.”
