We also just announced (via our montly newsletter) that our incredibly popular Soup @ FSFM Winter Market fundraiser event will return in early March for its fifth year, with soup from over a dozen West Michigan restaurants that support the Fulton Street Farmers Market! This fun + tasty event takes place during our thriving Winter Market where you can find locally-grown + crafted food and farm products from a great variety of vendors!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 9th from 10am-1pm to warm up with ALL YOU CAN TASTE samples of hand-crafted soup, bread, and apples for only $10! And keep an eye out for the official Facebook event here in the next couple weeks!

Proceeds from the event benefit the Fulton Street Farmers Market, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, 96-year old Market, and community hub for farmers, food creators, and artists in West Michigan. Your financial support helps to keep the Market open ALL YEAR LONG, giving this amazing community access to local food even through the colder months.
