Whether the weather makes us feel like it or not, summer is here! And that means more opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy local food with your friends. Here is a sampling of upcoming “foodie” events happening in Southeast Michigan. Hope to see you there!
Save the date for our upcoming Guide to Local Food Release Parties! We’re so excited about how the Guides turned out this year and can’t wait to share them with you! Follow the Facebook events (linked below) to stay up to date on our Release Party details.
There are big things happening for local farmers and the community at the Flint Farmers’ Market. If you have ever shopped at this market in the summer, you know the outside pavilion is a beautiful space to shop and soak in the sights, smells, and sounds that encapsulate the growing season and all that Flint area farmers have to offer. However, this season you may notice some changes in the pavilion.
During this time of year, The Local Grocer is a squash wonderland!
The Flint Crepe Company began serving crepes and coffee to the Flint community in 2009. At first, it was nothing more than a mobile crepe cart at the Flint Farmers’ Market and around town. On November 11, 2011 we opened our current storefront on Saginaw Street. We’ve come a long way since then!
You may have heard or seen Flint in the news because of the water crisis, but the staff and volunteers of Flint Fresh are working hard to ensure the next time you think of Flint you think of great, local food.
