Looking for something fun to do on Tuesday night? Do you love live music, local food, fresh produce, and handmade goods? If so, come on out to our Summer Nights at the Market event + hear The Crane Wives Duo (Kate Pillsbury + Emilee Petersmark) perform a FREE two-set concert on the plaza, shop from Michigan farmers, food producers, and artisans, get a bite to eat (or more) from a great selection of food trucks, and bring the kiddos out to participate in some activities with Artists Creating Together.
