2019 Summer Press Conference

Flint, MI–The Flint Farmers’ Market and several community partners announced improvements and changes for the market at a press conference and ribbon cutting held today, June 4th, in the market atrium.

Elga Credit Union

The Market is pleased to announce ELGA Credit Union as the sponsor for the Demonstration Kitchen. Join us in celebrating our new and improved commercial kitchen. “ELGA Credit Union is delighted to join the thriving Flint Farmers’ Market Community by sponsoring the Demonstration Kitchen. The space allows local organizations to host cooking demonstrations that teach residents how to explore healthy lifestyles and learn about the importance of nutrition for health and wellness,” said Karen Church, ELGA Credit Union CEO.

Pavilion Patio OPEN NOW!

Our new “Pavilion Patio” located at the west end of the outdoor market pavilion is now OPEN! The festive new space is proudly sponsored by HAP, and includes picnic tables, indoor outdoor grass carpet, patio themed decorations, and food trucks ALL SUMMER LONG.

Upick Grocery Delivery Service

The market is getting ready to launch Upick Grocery Delivery Service, created by Ferris State University student, Brent Diggs Jr. Upick Grocery Delivery Service is a shopping and delivery service, great for the people in the community who are not able to reach locally grown products on a daily basis.
