Flint Water Crisis

The Flint water crisis began in 2014 when the Flint River became the drinking water source for the city of Flint, Michigan. Due to insufficient water treatment, over 100,000 residents were potentially exposed to high levels of lead in the drinking water. A federal state of emergency was declared in January 2016 and Flint residents were instructed to use only bottled or filtered water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing. As of early 2017, the water quality had returned to acceptable levels; however, residents were instructed to continue to use bottled or filtered water until all the lead pipes have been replaced, which is expected to be completed no sooner than 2020.

Flint Farmers' Market

Flint Farmers’ Market is a year round public market with 50 vendors inside the building; the market is neat and clean and features several produce vendors, a great meat market, poultry, breads and baked goods, cheese, a wine shop, an art gallery, a cafe, middle-eastern and Mexican groceries, and many unique gifts. They even have two resident chefs. On Saturday you can stop in and “Ask the Chefs.”

Outside from May through October, there are produce and flower vendors in our pavilion, and on Saturdays they have art and craft vendors also.

There is great local, live music on the lawn most market days, story tellers and authors and several major events throughout the summer. The Flint Farmers’ Market is a year round feature of Flint’s landscape. The market is a place where everyone knows he or she can make a quality purchase, feel comfortable and welcome, and probably meet friends they haven’t seen in a while.
This summer make sure you get out and enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes and the smells of the Flint Farmers’ Market!
