The Flint Farmers’ Market has moved back downtown Flint, MI.
The move allows the market to undergo significant updates and expansion, and marks its return to the downtown Flint area after more than 70 years.
“Many people have memories of the market at its current location. There is history, ambiance, and a country-like quietness at the location alongside the river, all of which hold great attraction. However, we are hopeful that the public will embrace the fact that moving into a newer and much larger facility offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for the market and its vendors to take a significant step into the future.”
