Traveling to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula often means driving from one popular destination to the next. It’s easy to get hungry in between, and while we could eat pasties and fudge all day, you may be looking for other options. Skip the gas station snack selections! Stop by the top farmers markets around the Upper Peninsula to grab some locally-made goodies. Indulge in fresh produce, meats, cheeses, jams and baked goods. Rather than hassle with packing a cooler the morning of your departure, you can also piece together several filling meals for picnics and campfire cooking here, too.

Find a variety of jams, fresh produce, flowers, meats, crafts, baked goods and more at these locations!
