Where to Find the Best U-Pick Fruit Farms + Farmers Markets Around Kalamazoo –  2019

Warmer weather means fresh produce in Southwest Michigan and we couldn’t be happier!

We are lucky to live in an area with an abundance of local farms that supply us with a diverse offering of fresh produce. Many local farms offer U-pick berries in the summer months (typically June for strawberries, July for blueberries and later summer for peaches). Plan now to make an annual family tradition of fruit picking.

If you don’t have the time (or desire) to U-pick yourself, let the fresh produce come to you by stopping at any number of farmers markets within an hour of Kalamazoo. You’ll find fresh vegetables, meats, cheese, fruit, eggs, chocolates, wine and so much more.

Read on to explore both U-pick fruit options and Farmers Markets.

Make sure to follow the farm/U-pick location on Facebook for all the latest updates or call prior to heading out to verify picking availability.
