Thank to everyone who has come out to support local farms, food producers, artists, and musicians at our Tuesday Summer Nights at the Market events series! Our LAST event is this upcoming Tuesday from 5p-8, with Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish playing TWO sets (music starts at 6 with a 15-minute brief intermission at 6:45), a chance to shop from Michigan farmers, food creators, and artisans, food truck rally, and kids activities in collaboration with the Grand Rapids Children's Museum!

So if you've been enjoying your Tuesday nights with us, we'd love to have you again; if you haven't made it out yet, now is your opportunity to treat yourself to a date night, a fun evening with friends or family, or a solo adventure to meet new friends.
