Farmer's Market

Looking for fresh produce, local honey, and homemade crafts? Try the Davison Farmer's Market, open 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every Friday from July 7th to Sept. 8th, 2006. In addition to produce, the market features live music, assorted crafts, and lunch-type food (hot dogs, brats, pie, etc.).There's also a drawing for a free Market Basket every week. My only complaint is that it's only on Fridays and only July- September.

I visited the Flint Farmer's Market last fall and was very impressed. The are open year-round, Tues. & Thurs. 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sat. 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. They have meat, produce, a wine shop, two bakeries, Watkins products, health foods, flowers, used book and Flint Institute of Arts gift shop (cool jewelry, reasonable prices). I also recommend the lunch place upstairs, which might be called Steady Eddie's. The have good sandwiches and good prices.
