The Grand Rapids Downtown Market is the place to be this weekend, whether shopping for vintage goods, plants or grabbing a meal or snack inside the Market.

On Sunday, June 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., guests can shop the season’s second Vintage Street Market. The popular Vintage Street Market takes place in the Outdoor Market Shed and features about 50 vendors selling vintage furniture, clothing, accessories, kitchen goods, home décor and more.

From the perfect vintage couture dress to hand-painted sideboards, visitors can hunt for one-of-a-kind treasures and collector’s items. Vendors were carefully curated to provide the best variety of vintage goods Grand Rapids has to offer. An outdoor bar also features vintage-inspired cocktails and a selection of beer and wine during the event.

For visitors still needing to plant their gardens, the Downtown Market plant sale offers a head start with a wide selection of starter plants in 4- and 6-inch diameter pots. For transplanting to the backyard or filling out a container garden, the selection of plants grown in the Downtown Market’s greenhouse includes cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, eggplant, edible flowers, edible ornamentals, herbs, lettuce greens, leafy greens and more.

The Vintage Street Market continues all summer on the second Sunday of the month. Future dates, a list of 2016 vendors and vendor registration information are available at the Vintage Street Market page.
