Grand Rapids Downtown Market
Your farmers here, inviting you to join us on Saturday, March 25 for the Growers’ Fare: our third annual local farmer open house at the Downtown Market.Come! Hang out with us, eat snacks, and ask questions. We’d love to talk with you (and make fun & farmy crafts with your kids)!
Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) connects you to a local farm and supplies you with a share of their fresh, local & sustainable harvest all season long. All of the farms at the event have openings in their farm-share programs this season and would love for you to join them (we’re pumped to meet you).
The event will be a casual meet-and-greet affair, with food samples, demos, and plenty of information about how joining a CSA can work for you.
Cheers to supporting your farmers, caring about your earth, and eating more of this delicious state.
Looking forward to feeding you this season!
