The Richland Farmers Market is the place where vendors come from all corners of the community to share their all natural products and crafts.

Their location has been moved from the Gull Lake Middle School parking lot to the Richland Area Community Center. It was open from May 10 through October 4 of 2017.

Every week there was: fresh local produce, handcrafted treats, and art from local craftsmen, this includes; music, games and fun times are that are all free of charge. Vendors may come from places like Grand Rapids and Russell farm to Tasty Acres and Nashville.

Some of these vendors include; The Cheese People of Grand Rapids, where customers can choose from small-batch cheese cut from the wheel; The Maple Leaf Farm, where they offer fresh produce; and Verdant, Grace which provides a wide range of baked goods, plus bathroom, home and beauty products.

“My favorite vendor has to be Kahoona’s kitchen,” Dianne Thrasher said, a regular visitor of the market. “I go around 3 p.m. right when it opens because it is convenient and on my way home.”

One of the selling points of the Richland Farmers market is the wide variety that they offer each week. Each vendor offers new and intriguing products, making the shopping experience adventurous and fun.

“There is lots of diversity, it changes with the seasons,” Thrasher said. “The only thing I wish they had would be a bigger revenue.”

Not only is it a breath of fresh air, but it gives people the opportunity to interact more with their community. The Richland Area Community Center is a non-profit organization that relies solely on the surrounding areas support. Because they receive no government funding, the Richland Area Community Center promotes to anyone in the surrounding area to come and visit.
