Grand Rapids Downtown Market Introduces Third Thursdays

This week, the Grand Rapids Downtown Market kicks off Third Thursdays, a new event taking place the third Thursday of each month, each with a different theme and special deals.

The first Third Thursday event takes place this Thursday, June 20th from 4–7 p.m., and features giant outdoor games and the launch of a punch card program that guests can bring back each time.

This Thursday, guests will be able to play darts on a giant 16-foot dartboard, try their hand at fowling (a combination of football and bowling) and play through a nine-hole putt-putt golf course, all while enjoying a beverage from the outdoor Market bar.

Guests can pick up a punch card at the info table under the Market Shed, and receive a punch for every $10 they spend this Thursday, and at each upcoming Third Thursday event. When they reach 12 punches, they can redeem it for a $15 gift card to use in the Downtown Market. 

Third Thursday starts this week and continues through December. Visit for more.
