57 Reasons to Live in West Michigan Reason #16: Farmers Markets

Since 1922, The Fulton Street Farmer's Market has offered locally grown fruits and vegetables, plants and home-made arts and crafts. Beat the crowds and get first pick of the freshest goods by coming early on Saturday mornings. Good spot to pick up a fellow foodie and show your commitment to "buying and eating local."
Fulton Street is the oldest, but by no means the only, farmer's market. Almost every outlying community with an agricultural base - including Ada, Coopersville, Grand Haven, Holland, Lowell and Rockford - offers shoppers a venue for delicious homegrown fruits and veggies - many of them organically grown. This may be what inspired Gerber in Newaygo County to start producing organic baby food. Folks up there are also making artisan mozzarella from water buffalo. Really.
