Description

West Michigan has the abundant farm production, consumer demand and community support necessary to establish a year-round indoor/outdoor marketplace in downtown Grand Rapids. Grand Action and the Grand Rapids DDA have hired Pioneer Construction to serve as the construction manager to make this dream a reality. The permanent Downtown Market will help catalyze downtown revitalization, generate jobs, and new economic activity, and expand access to fresh foods for people from all walks of life.

 

The Downtown Market will house rooftop greenhouses, indoor stalls for food vendors selling fresh produce, a seasonal outdoor farmers market, two restaurants, a commercially certified production kitchen, a community demonstration kitchen, and event space. It will also include food demonstration facilities and the nation’s first kid’s demonstration kitchen.

 

The Market was awarded USGBC LEED Gold Certification.
