Allen Street Farmer's Market

This is a good time of year for farmer's markets: some spring vegetables -like cabbages and greens - are still on, and the beginning of the bounty of late summer is beginning. I got some great tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini at the Allen Street Market last week. The flavor of real, fresh in season veggies is so wonderful, you have to give it a try. (Yes, we do get pretty good vegetables at grocery stores around here, but really, this is different.) They also have baked goods, canned goods, and potted plants.

The Allen Street Market runs in a parking lot at the corner of Allen and Kalamazoo every Wednesday from 3:30 to 7:30 pm. (And if you are out in Okemos on a Saturday, there is also a Farmer's market just north of Meridian Mall, in the parking lot of the Nakomis center on Saturday mornings.)
