More information on Growing Hope’s absolutely fantastic downtown Ypsi farmers’ market (held from 2:00 to 6:00 every Tuesday afternoon, beginning May 5), can be found here… If you haven’t checked it out recently, you really should. Not only will there be free herb plants for the readers of MM.com, and terrific local food items of all kinds, but there are activities for kids, and lots of interesting people to talk with. It’s really a great place to get to see what Ypsi is all about.
Oh, I should also mention that this Friday and Saturday (rain or shine) Growing Hope will be having its Spring Plant Sale, where you can purchase raised beds, seedlings, edible container planters, herbs, hand-balm made by young Ypsi entrepreneurs, and all kinds of other stuff. The sale will be held at the Growing Hope Center (922 W. Michigan Ave, Ypsilanti) Friday, May 1 from 3-7 pm, and Saturday, May 2 from 9 am-3 pm. [note: The coupon above will not be accepted at the Spring Plant Sale. It will only be accepted at the Tuesday farmers' market.]
