Fulton Street Famers Market Goes Hi-Tech
Who doesn't love the Fulton Street Farmers Market? I used to live a block from it! I miss being so close.
Some good news! Soon - familes who use SNAP or WIC funds will be able to buy fresh and local at almost any farmers market in Michigan and across the country including right here at the newly renovated Fulton St. Farmers Market here in GR!
Vendors can use iPhone devices for cards from families on food assistance. This is great for everyone!
They are predicting a 30% increase at the Farmers Market because of it.
The $4 million USDA grant will bring 4,000 farmers markets across the country up to speed with the Fulton Street Market right here in GR.
