Farmers Market

36th Street Marketplace


The 36th Street Marketplace is designed for year-round usage and will support local vendors, seasonal farm and food markets, and community events. Located across the street from one of the largest brownfield opportunity sites in the state, 36th Street Marketplace is intended to play a large role in Wyoming’s economic future.

The city’s recently adopted master plan, Wyoming [re]Imagined, prioritizes investments in the community that contribute to placemaking and support cultural identity. 

Residential involvement in this project began years ago during the City’s master plan process, where residents called for this site to be used for “more community-oriented or commercial uses” and suggested a community center or an entertainment complex as examples.

The city then hosted a series of summer markets from 2021 to 2022 with local vendors and entrepreneurs to better understand what they would be looking for in a full-time market. The details of everything from site layout to hours of operation, placement of electrical sockets to access of water spigot were driven by conversations with the future vendors.


The City of Wyoming was one of sixteen communities awarded grant money from The Right Place Inc. as a result of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Revitalization and Placemaking 2.0 grant. The city is set to receive $450,000 for the 36th Street Marketplace project.

The public marketplace is funded in part by the Right Place’s contribution from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s grant, city funds from the sale of Site 36 and a contribution from real estate development firm Franklin Partners LLC.



The marketplace will sit on the 5-acre parcel of land on the north side of Site 36. 

What to Expect

The 6,000 square foot venue will serve as a market for farmers and artisans as well as providing designated space for food trucks and entertainers. With a $50,000 grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation for public art, the facility will showcase the talents of a local artist. This vibrant public gathering space will be overseen by Wyoming’s Parks & Recreation department and offer community events and programming.

The year-round facility will include 24 flexible vendor stalls, storage space, restrooms, a water bottle filling station, as well as garage doors to offer open air access in temperate weather.


We anticipate breaking ground in spring 2024.
