In this July series of blog posts Cravings Gourmet Popcorn acknowledges events, people and businesses that positively contribute to the unique identity and experience of Old Town.
In the summer and fall Old Town First Sundays include the Old Town Farmer’s Market. Eight to ten vendors travel from local farms to set-up shop in the parking lot next to Sir Pizza on Grand River Avenue in Old Town. They are bringing fresh produce, plants, herbs, homemade baked goods, salsa, cheese, homespun yarn and handcrafted soaps.
Urban settings like Old Town are often classified as food deserts with very few options for fresh produce and other food stuffs. The Old Town Farmer’s Market becomes a regular food oasis on the following May thru October dates in 2013: May 5, June 2, July 7, August 4, September 8 (Yes, we know that this is technically not the first Sunday of September), and October 6
The Old Town Farmer’s Market not only feeds body and soul but also feeds a sense of spirit and enthusiasm for the area. Our Farmer’s Market vendors are great advocates for Old Town.
