Southeast Area Farmers’ Market Upcoming Events

SEAFM 8-30-13Kids going back to school herald the end of summer, but not the end of the farmers’ market season. The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market has fresh local produce and market activities that support your family’s good health.

Calling all artists!
On Saturday September 7, the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market hosts Art at the Market, a showcase of local talent. If you draw, paint, sculpt or create in any other medium, we invite you to join us. Contact Our Kitchen Table for more details, or 616-206-3641.

Healthy meals and snacks!
Do you ever wonder what to do with all those fresh veggies you just bought at the market? On September 28, the market will host cooking demos featuring easy recipes made with in-season, fresh produce.

Double your buying power!
Like many others farmers’ markets in town, the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market participates in the Double Up Food Bucks program. Patrons shopping with a Bridge Card (SNAP) receive $2 for every $2 spent on Michigan produce, up to $20 in free Michigan produce each time you visit. The market also accepts WIC Project Fresh, Cash Value Benefits, Summer EBT and Kent County Health Department coupons.

The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market takes place Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Gerald R Ford School. The Friday Farm Stand at Garfield Park is open 3 to 7 p.m.
