The Farmers Market is open on Sundays from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
The story goes that a small, dark painting innocently acquired during a pleasant afternoon's shopping in the Royal Oak Farmers Market turned out to be something more. Cleaned and appraised, this tiny Manet was later auctioned at Christie's for $3 million. True? The fortunate shopper won't say, but there are treasures to be found every Sunday, Flea Market day at the Royal Oak Farmers Market.
A New Kind of Shopping
Antiques and collectibles shopping is relatively new to this venerable institution, having been around for a little over 40 years, but in that time the Flea Market has become a weekly stop for thousands of Metro Detroiters (and a good number from further away). We can't promise that you will find your heart's desire this week, but maybe next...whenever you come we are sure you will see many unique and wonderful things.
