Lakefield Township


We will be posting updates to the Lakefield Township website along with the Facebook group
Jonesfield/Lakefield Township Area Residents (past, present & future).

The Lakefield Farmers Market (AKA – LFM) will begin on May 15th at the Lakefield Township Hall and will continue on future Saturdays depending upon community response. The market will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.​ The Township is interested in obtaining produce and craft vendors as well as food/concession vendors.

There will be a limited number of vendor sites under the pavilion and some outside sites. Vendors will be assigned sites based on their needs. Vendors will be responsible for bringing their own tables and any other needed items. There are a limited number of picnic tables available on a first-come basis.

There will be no access to the hall. A port-a-potty will be available. A township officer will not always be present. If there is rain or stormy weather, vendors can decide if they choose to attend or stay.

For those interested in a vendor location please contact Johnnie Schmidt at 989-326-1354. Your reservation will allow us to be sure there is space for all.

The LFM is being offered as a township service. Please be respectful and work cooperatively with others.
