The Made in MI Pop-Up Marketplace aligns with the Downtown Market’s mission to be a dynamic public space for all people that provides access to local food, improves community health and is a platform for entrepreneurship and jobs in the city of Grand Rapids.

“Michiganders have such strong pride in their state and commitment to buying local, and Grand Rapids in particular has become recognized as a destination for makers, artisans and entrepreneurs,” said Amanda Gielczyk, director of marketing and special events. “The Downtown Market is committed to providing resources and opportunities for these entrepreneurs, and providing them a platform to connect with consumers.”

The Made in Michigan Pop-Up Marketplace continues through the fourth Saturday of each month, with future dates including June 23, July 28, August 25 and September 22.
