Fulton Street Farmer's Market in Grand Rapids Michigan is Bloomin'

The Farmer's Market in Grand Rapids officially starts in May. The Grand

 Rapids location on the Fulton and Fuller Street corner is open on Tuesday,

Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, every week until October.  Most local produce

really starts to come to market in June, so the offerings are a little

sparse right now.

When we visited yesterday, there was fresh Michigan asparagus, fresh rhubarb,

red potatoes, and green house grown tomatoes from local farmers. There was

lots of plants and flowering plants for sale also. We saw lettuce, some really

healthy tomato plants, and lots of flowering baskets and containers to spruce

 up your home and landscape. In about 2-3 weeks, we should start to see local

radishes, lettuce, and strawberries for sale. We took a few pictures so you can

see what it looks like now. I will try to get back later in June,so you can see the

 true flavor of what is offered.
