Market will open Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with vendors from all over Metro Detroit.

The is back in town, kicking off Sunday with a variety of fruits and vegetables, food vendors, civic groups and businesses. 

Farmers Market shoppers can expect to see at least 25 tables at City Park on Sunday. The market will be open every Sunday through Sept. 18 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.

This will be the second full season of having a Farmers Market in Clawson. Directors and tested out the Farmers Market in September 2009 and continued it the following year. Cochran said hundreds turned out last year for the Farmers Markets.

Vendors from all over Michigan participate in the market, and is, so far, the only Clawson food vendor.

Richard Julian, owner of Julian Brothers Bakery, said he plans to sell fresh bread, rolls, pizza, sandwhiches and water each Sunday. Julian said he enjoys the market because it gives him a chance to promote his business to the community and meet new people. However, he said he hopes it will expand in the coming summers.
