Kalamazoo’s Farmers Market

Posted on April 20th, 2010

Kalamazoo, Mich. — The city of Kalamazoo’s Farmer’s Market is a great place to start the day on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays this summer.

I’m always amazed at the assortment of fresh local produce, flowers and plants, baked goods, meat, and handmade products available. I don’t know about you, but my initial plan is always to pick up some fresh veggies for the week and maybe some flowers to jazz up my office cubicle. When all is said and done, I’ve got at least three bags hanging from each hand – and I’m usually nibbling on something before I head out of the parking lot. Check out the Farmers Market Facebook Page.

The Market participates in Project Fresh a program that accepts WIC and EBT programs for the last three years. The market promotes fresh foods and healthy groceries to those with few dollars to spend and limited transportation. The results have multiplied each year as more shoppers have become aware of the opportunity:
