Imported Image When it comes to handmade treats, specialty grocery items, mouthwatering food, and fun family events, the Grand Rapids Downtown Market is West Michigan’s one-stop shop. Celebrating 10 years this September, the Grand Rapids Downtown Market has grown into one of West Michigan’s favorite food destinations. With an indoor Market Hall, an outdoor event space hosting public activities, an Incubator Kitchen that provides production space for new food entrepreneurs, and an award-winning venue space that has hosted more than 650 weddings since 2013, the Downtown Market is a food-lovers paradise.  Market Hall Imported Image Open seven days a week, the Market Hall hosts a culinary collective of 20 food artisans, including butchers, bakers, fishmongers, French pastry chefs, and more. Enjoy street tacos for lunch and a scoop of freshly made ice cream for dessert. Looking for that secret ingredient to elevate your next meal at home? Peruse infused olive oils and balsamic vinegar, herbs, rubs and spices, imported cheese, charcuterie, and wine from around the world. Grab-n-go snacks include 500 varieties of craft sodas, freshly baked croissants, bread, bagels, and a coffee and espresso bar that serves a curated toast menu. The Market’s public outdoor terrace is the perfect setting to have a bite to eat in a lovely, urban setting, surrounded by sunshine and fresh air. Have a few extra minutes? Take the time to talk with the business owners about their products and their business—this is a group of passionate chefs and creators who are invested in making and selling the best products possible. They’ll likely talk to you about where their ingredients come from, how their food is made (mostly right in front of your eyes at the Market), and provide recipe ideas or cooking suggestions. Outdoor Shed Imported Image The Outdoor Market Shed is Grand Rapids’ newest option for experiencing a public event in a dynamic downtown environment. With the option to be fully enclosed, the Market Shed hosts fun, family-friendly activities all year long! This summer, you can join in on all the fun with events including:
