Buy farm fresh and taste the local difference!
Discover the delicious fresh produce of our fertile orchards and farms. Depending on the season, lush orchards are filled with beautiful, fragrant blossoms or fruit ready for picking, and vegetables are ripening in our fields. Much of the local produce is available at quaint, easily accessible roadside farm markets. And don’t miss the Fox Barn Market and Winery in Shelby, celebrating five generations of family farming in their century-old barn. Take part in daily traditional grape or fruit wine tastings and shop for delicious fresh fruit and produce plus specialty goods and gifts.
Regardless of when you travel in our area – spring, summer or fall – our farm markets are brimming with fresh possibilities.
In spring, Oceana County's #1 crop is a crisp, cool green and ready to take home…Asparagus. Don’t miss our famous National Asparagus Festival in early June. Spinach, lettuce, broccoli, peas, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, blueberries, beans, tomatoes and corn are soon to follow and apples, peaches, pears and plums plus squash, melons and pumpkins appear in late summer and fall at local farm markets and U-pick farms.
Yum! There is nothing better than freshly picked produce and we have an abundance of delicious crops for you to choose from.
