Fresh season is finally here!

Fresh is good! We love our local farmers’ markets and enjoy the great variety of options that we have here in Southwest Michigan. Each market is unique and offers a huge array of produce from local farmers, artisan products, local baked goods, lovely flowers, and more! Some even have a number of food trucks to grab a quick bite.

The farmers’ markets are a great place to run into a friend, grab a cup of coffee, or talk to a local producer.

Enjoy the bounty of the season!
