People shop for local produce at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market.

The Old Fourth Ward Neighborhood lies within the Old Fourth Ward Historic District – one of the first residential areas in the city. The land was purchased by pioneer settlers and quickly became known as the center of Ann Arbor, inhabited by the town's leading citizens. Fondly remembered as many travelers’ first acquaintance to the City, visitors were transported by carriage up the steep hills of State Street into the city from the railroad station. Today, the Old Fourth Ward Neighborhood is home to Kerrytown, a lively marketplace blending the best of the old and new. Named after County Kerry, Ireland ­– the ancestral home of the developer of the area – Kerrytown hosts the Ann Arbor Farmers’ Market every Wednesday and Saturday throughout summer and fall.
