Taubman Museum of Art becomes pop-up farmers market during new event

Late Nights: Midsummer market is Friday Aug. 6, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., admission is free

Pop-up farmer’s market meets urban soiree is how the Taubman Museum of Art describes their new midsummer market.

The Friday night event goes from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and features live music, local vendors from hair and body oils to wine and gourmet spreads and an opportunity to explore the museum’s galleries after dark.

It’s part of their Late Night series, where every first Friday of the month the museum will have a different evening event and theme. The event is organized by 13 community members.

“It’s all about having an experience at the museum with the art, celebrating, kind of being with each other doing unique cultural experiences and using the museum as kind of a hub for the community,” said Holly DiGangi, deputy director of development at Taubman Museum of Art.

The event is free, and the first 100 people will get a complimentary Chateau Morrisette cider tasting.

Vendors include:

  • Baby Bear Lavender Farm
  • Chateau Morrisette Winery
  • Golden Foot Flower Farm
  • Kind Baking Company
  • Naturoils Herbal Detox Spa
  • Oliveto Artisan Oils and Vinegar
  • Storied Goods
  • The Hemp Mill
