This dispatch was added by one of our Nonprofit Neighbors. It does not represent the editorial voice of The Rapidian or Community Media Center.

Although the ice, snow, rain, storms, wind, and clouds have returned the last couple days, we are anticipating a sunny day tomorrow, just in time for shopping at the Market! We'll have around 30 vendors with a diverse product selection!

What local produce + food will you find on vendor stands tomorrow? Take a peek at the list below for the food products we expect from our second season Market vendors!

We are also excited to announce some fruitful changes to the 2019 seasons and hours to open the door to greater success and growth of FSFM!

With these new season and hour changes, our intention is to create well-rounded Market days to better serve our customers + vendors. We anticipate that these changes will help ensure consistency and a full selection of products for the hours we are open. We will continue to serve the needs of our community and be a platform for local food and engagement.

We also couldn't be more excited to be hosting a Summer Nights at the Market series in collaboration with some amazing community partners. We will have live, local musicians performing, food trucks, Michigan food vendors, and kids activities from 5-8pm starting the second Tuesday of July! We are still hard at work figuring out details, but will be announcing more about the 8 event series within the next month or so. Stay tuned!
