Open Air Market of Stockbridge is on the Town Square

Stockbridge Town Square, South Center Street, Stockbridge, MI, United States
Address: Stockbridge Town Square, South Center Street, Stockbridge, MI, United States

The Market began its 11th season on Friday, May 7, on the township square in downtown Stockbridge. Each week through October 29 (26 weeks), we plan to set up so that we all can enjoy camaraderie and still continue reasonable social distancing.

Our vendors will not be right next to each other and booths will be further back from the sidewalk, to allow patrons to stand at least six feet apart. Our vendors include: Shafer, Po, Beemers, Joey, Denise, Maryanne, Olga, Carolyn, Suzi, Betty, Kathleen and Gabrielle.

This season, we will have a full line up of Market Music beginning May 7 through August 27. Remember to bring your own chair. Please keep a safe distance from the musicians and others or take a walk around the square!

    Waterloo Farm Museum offers a glance into the past as it recreates the Christmas season on an 1880’s farm. German ancestry is evident in many
    of the activities and decorations. The Christmas tree, mantels, tabletops and doorways are adorned with glass bead garlands, paper cones filled with candy and gilded nuts, crepe paper flowers, soft cotton or wool Santas and angels, cornucopias, paper chains, spirals and snowflakes. Many items are handmade, some immigrated from Germany with family. Kugels, originally heavy glass balls suspended by chains or ribbons, later developed into more delicate ornaments often shaped into fruit, nut and pinecones. These lovely glass ornaments were made more beautiful as they reflected sun or candlelight. St. Nicholas rewards good children while his counterpart, Krampus with his claw and horns, swats wicked children and takes them to his lair. Both gentlemen wander the grounds spreading their cheer (or fear!). Gifts were few and simple. Much singing, toasting and eating take up time during gatherings The dining table is heaped with the best food available, delicious smells of baking and cooking fill the air, and singing and music are heard in the parlor. Do step back in time and
    experience Christmas on the Farm.
