ANN ARBOR – The Ann Arbor Farmers Market is turning 100 this summer, and to celebrate, organizers are throwing a birthday bash fit for its centennial. 

Expect fun for all ages, including a performance by the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and an instrument "petting zoo" with A2SO staff. 

Free ice cream from Washtenaw Dairy will also be handed out, and crowds can stop by and see a cooking demo by The Standard Bistro and Larder. 

Organizers ask that visitors wear old farmers market T-shirts to its birthday celebration. "We want to see the designs from over the years," organizers wrote on the event's Facebook page.
