Here’s some really good news for all of us who want to eat healthier.  The Downtown YMCA’s Hunting Branch is now hosting a Y Farmers’ Market each Thursday from 3 to 7 PM in the NW corner of the parking lot.

Now, each Thursday now through September 29, shoppers with have another opportunity to buy fresh produce, fruits and vegetables, for their family.  The market will also have meat, eggs, honey, jam, salsa, breads and more, all farm fresh!

Feeding families better foods to help create a healthy West Michigan is a real goal of the Y.  Carol Van Andel, Chairman of the Y’s Activate West Michigan campaign, has been pushing for this program for a long time, and, at last, it’s here.

The market is open to all, and thus far, hundreds have been shopping each Thursday.
