Where to Find Michigan Potatoes

Most store-brand potatoes in Michigan are locally sourced. Michigan potato farmers purchase their supplies locally and many are involved in community service.

Michigan’s climate and geography provide abundant amounts of rainfall and groundwater for potato cultivation. Michigan potatoes are proudly grown in the Great Lakes Basin with naturally pure water, in pockets of sandy soil formed by glaciers 14,000 years ago – making great conditions for potato cultivation.

Michigan potatoes are grown in over 40 counties across the state, from Iron Mountain to Sturgis and Monroe.

From mid-July through late October, potatoes are harvested across Michigan. Some of our potatoes go directly to market and others into storage, which means Michigan potatoes are available almost year-round.

Michigan potatoes travel much shorter distances from farm to consumer than those from popular potato states, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint.
