Farmers market coming to Heartside neighborhood

Sponsored by Saint Mary's Health Care, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital and Advantage Health Physician Network hopes to make farm-fresh foods and other goods available to Heartside residents and employees who work in the area.

The Wealthy Street Farmers Market will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursdays, May 19 through Oct. 13, in an unused parking lot off Cass St. SE, near the corner of Wealthy St. and Jefferson Avenue. Mary Free Bed owns the property.

The market will feature 12 to 18 vendors, including Dogwood Farm, Grand Rapids Coffee Roasters, Nantucket Baking Company, Funny Farm Organic Produce and Martin's Sugarbush & Produce.

Seasonal offerings will include the spring launch with annual plants, perennials, coffees and baked goods and will end with pumpkins, apples and fall perennials.

The market will have a different health-related twist each week that will include free recipes with a list of the ingredients available at the market and blood pressure screenings. Nutritionists will be available at different times to teach shoppers about antioxidants and the health advantages of various herbs.
