Farmers’ market set to open

GRAND BLANC — The Grand Blanc Farmers’ Market is looking for farmers for the pop-up markets that will begin Friday, Aug. 7, at the Grand Chalet Shoppes.

Vendors and shoppers should note that the time, days and venue have changed. Farmers markets will open at 10 a.m. and close at 3 p.m. on Fridays.

“We’ve been given recommendations not to have concerts or kids’ activities or anything that pretty much keeps people at the site,” said Assistant City Manager Christina Irwin.

Without the ancillary activities, it made sense to move the market to the Chalets from Physicians Park.

Irwin said the city is hoping to draw as many produce vendors as can fit in the Chalet common area.

Interested vendors should email Irwin at for more information. — L.R.
