In addition to being a year-round public market with farm-fresh produce and artisan food vendors, The Flint Farmers’ Market also doubles as a social meeting space with live music and storytellers who entertain on the lawn — there’s even a Saturday yoga class for Flint’s crunchy set. After 70 years in the same location in the city’s northside, the market moved to downtown Flint in 2014, wanting to be closer to the city center and the university students that flock to the space for its prepared foods and fresh, seasonal fruits and veggies. The kids love kale.
