OKT manages the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market in partnership with the Kent County Health Department (KCHD) and Greater Grand Rapids Food System Council (GGRFSC). The 2014 Market Season runs from June 20 – November 8. The market meets at three pedestrian-friendly locations:

Opening Day is June 19, 2015!

Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ~ Main Market
Gerald R Ford Academic Center, Madison Avenue just south of Franklin Street SE

Fridays 3 to 7 p.m. ~ Garfield Park Satellite Market (through Aug. 29)
Garfield Park, Madison Avenue and Burton Street SE

Our vendors provide a wide variety of local, chemical-free produce, cottage kitchen foods, personal care items, crafts and ready-to-eat foods. They are primarily women of color, home growers and residents of OKT’s targeted neighborhoods. In addition to providing access to healthy food, the market hosts meal preparation activities, workshops and guests from community organizations.

During the 2013 market season:

  • More than 1,100 community residents attended the market.
  • 89% percent of market sales were from food subsidy programs.
  • Market sales totaled more than $8000.
