Meat, Eggs, Milk, and Produce Can Be Hard to Find in Kalamazoo

Getting groceries isn’t the same.  Many people are looking for alternatives to the big box stores and turning to local sources instead.

Finding a local source can be a little tricky, so that’s why we started this list of Kalamazoo area farms and outlets carrying local (for the most part) produce, meat, and dairy items.

And, find a list of opening dates for Southwest Michigan Farmers Markets.

In addition to supporting local farmers and business owners, these outlets provide an alternative for families to buy many high demand grocery items. If you know of other outlets, please leave a comment below. Thanks!
