Fulton Street Farmers Market Opens Tomorrow
Fulton Street Farmers Market Opens Tomorrow

The Fulton Street Farmers Market returns to regular summer hours tomorrow May 7th. The Farmers Market opens at 8am. and usually closes by 3 depending on traffic. The Market is open every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday until Christmas.  

A Grand Rapids institution since 1922 commonly known as "the Farmer's Market," the Fulton Street Market offers locally-grown fruits and vegetables, plants and home-made arts and crafts. Reap the benefits and pleasures of freshly-picked fruits and vegetables, as well as hand-made items!

The Fulton Street Farmer's Market has provided local produce to the City of Grand Rapids for over eighty years. The Market is located in the Midtown Neighborhood and is operated by the Neighborhood Association. The Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation Department provides this venue offering produce, flowers, meat, eggs, and local handmade items as a service to the residents of Grand Rapids. Farmers markets provide a unique opportunity for urban dwellers to connect with food producers and are great places to meet friends. They also cut down on the wasteful long-distance food distribution system. (Did you know that your food travels over 1000 miles on average?)

When visiting the Market remember that there is extra parking on Saturdays at the Salvation Army and the Alpha Women's Center, both located a stone's-throw from the Market on Fulton. To avoid the traffic of Saturday visit the market on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. Avoid traffic altogether and take the Fulton Street bus #14 to the Market on all of the days. Project Fresh is accepted at the Market through the WIC program. Eat healthy and utilize the Fulton Street Farmer's Market as a sustainable choice for your own food purchasing.
