Grand Blanc is a small mostly upscale suburb of Flint, Michigan. Flint is having its troubles after a history of being at the top of the automotive world…it is now trying to reinvent itself and stop the flow of young persons out of the city. Grand Blanc is one of the suburbs that people working in Flint or further south like to live.
Every Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in summer the city hosts a nice farmer’s market in town on Grand Boulevard. This is their 5th year and they added five pre-season dates this year. These were dates mostly in May when produce wasn’t available, but flowers, arts and crafts could be purchased.
Le Fleur Decor had a lovely booth this past August 8 with adorable tempting wares. They are located in Hadley…I’ll have to plan an outing to the store!
I love that little blue table…except I hate the color blue…oh well…
The bright colors and fun furniture and pictures are just so happy. I’m not the “perky” type if you know what I mean…but who wouldn’t like these?
I need to get to that store…!
Sweet seedless watermelons, deep ridged fragrant honeydew melons, heritage tomatoes…yummy! Lots of vendors offer tastes…!
There is nothing like fresh fragrant herbs to add to recipes, salads or drinks. Fresh pesto is easy to make with Extra Virgin Olive Oil or as Rachel Ray calls it…EVOO…fresh basil…pine nuts and fresh shredded parmesan. On pasta…OMG! Wipe that drool off your chin…:)
Head to a farmers market near you. If you have never compared fresh grown vegetables to store bought…you just gotta try it. Buy the same variety…you won’t believe it.
Plus farmers markets sell a lot more than produce…many of the markets in Michigan include bread and baked goods, candy, soap, eggs, meat, berries, clothing, jewelry, baskets, salsa, mushrooms, cheese, cut or potted flowers, antiques, honey, syrup, sauces, pasta, twig creations, garden ornaments…and MORE!
AND…there is a market open in some community almost every day of the week…!
Try it…you’ll love it…
