Sara Hardy Downtown Farmers Market Moves to Old Town Parking Deck July 7 & 14
The Sara Hardy Downtown Farmers Market is to take place at the Old Town Parking Deck on July 7 and 14. The market will be held on the ground floor from 8 am to Noon. Customers may enter convenient parking on the upper floors of Old Town Deck off of Eighth Street. The July 11 market has been canceled. The DDA would also like to remind the public that the market will be held on the 4th of July.
The DDA has been working with the USDA and the State of Michigan on programs to enhance opportunities for fresh food to be easily accessible and affordable for all. Bridge Cards are now accepted at the market through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Project Fresh, Senior Project Fresh and Double Up Food Bucks are also accepted at the market.
Following the National Cherry Festival, the market will continue on Wednesdays through September from 8 am to Noon and Saturdays through October from 7:30 am to Noon. The market takes place in Lot B, across from Clinch Park on the Grandview Parkway.
Over 100 vendors and tens of thousands of patrons each year make the market the largest in Northwest Michigan and the best place to find locally grown produce. Products available at the market include artisan bread, flowers, plants, fruits, vegetables, honey and eggs. The market also offers varieties of organic products.
