The Local Feed Interviews the Fulton St Farmers Market ED

The Fulton Street Farmers Market in Grand Rapids, MI is in its 91st season! This week, on The Local Feed, we are interviewing Executive Director, Melissa Harrington. Listen to learn about their new building and the vendors located inside. The building is the cap of the project funded by their 3 million dollar capital campaign.

Listen here or below.

During the peak of the season 10,000 people show up to shop local and get to know their farmers. The market also includes a Wednesday evening market from June to September at 4:00 – 7:30 pm. At 6:00 pm on Wednesdays there will be cooking classes held in the building by August’s Kitchen. The classes will revolve around food which can be purchased at the FSFM.

Below is the upcoming schedule.

June 5th: Kitchen Essentials (Knife skills, clarified butter, roux, etc.)

June 12th: Pie Crusts

June 19th: Canning Tips and Techniques

Suggestions for additional classes and email sign up is available at the August’s Kitchen website.
