GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) - As we approach the end of the year, a lot of the Farmer's Markets in West Michigan get a lot smaller, or close down, for the winter season. You can still enjoy the fresh market experience in the warmth of the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids at the Indoor Market Hall. There are new things to discover all the time like classes and special opportunities.
Check out downtownmarketgr.com to see all the fun things happening. EightWest found some interesting classes, like "Bake Up Shake-up: Alternative Baking for Kids" November 2 from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
