We know we’re not the only ones in West Michigan smiling that the temps are warming up and the sun is showing it’s face a bit more often. The spring real estate market is kicking into high gear and we’re staying busy behind the scenes getting ready for all of the new listings to hit the market and to show off some beautiful Grand Rapids homes!


We know that it can’t be all work and no play when spring hits, so we made our way to the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre this month to check out and learn more about this beautiful space in Grand Rapids and to share a few events happening in the area this month that we think you’d be interested in checking out!



Spring Clean-Up at FSFM

April 27, 2019 from 1p-4p

Fulton Street Farmer's Market

1147 E. Fulton St., Grand Rapids, MI 49503


"Who's thinking Spring?! We certainly are + we need your help!

In just a couple months, we'll be hosting our Annual Spring Clean-Up, where our team members, vendors, and customers come together to tidy up the Market grounds, plant some flowers, do a little landscaping, and get the Market ready for OPENING DAY of the Main Season! How exciting! Snacks will be provided, birds will be chirping, sun may be shining, and we'll be full of joy as we celebrate the return of warmth + Springtime! We would love to spend some quality time with you, bonding over fresh air, sunshine (we hope!) and some hard (and necessary) work!  If you have gardening tools that you'd like to share or use, feel free to bring them along. Thank you for donating your time to the Market + the local food community!"
