We are looking to fill the contract position of Fulton Street ARTisans Market Coordinator for the 2014 season. See below for more information. Deadline for applications is Friday, February 14, 2014.
The Fulton Street Farmers Market will be opening for its’ 4th Winter Market season Saturday, January 4th from 10am-1pm. This will mark the first season in our fully completed renovated site, allowing vendors and customers to take advantage of the indoor market building. Due to the success of previous winter market seasons, the market has already outgrown the building, and will be hosting a minimum of 20 vendors each week, both indoors and outdoors offering the finest of Michigan’s agriculture. Due to the fact that our farmers now know that there is a venue to be able to sell their goods, they have been taking advantage of technologies to extend their growing season and have grown extra cold storage crops. We anticipate to have apples, root vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and onions, greenhouse tomatoes, greens, kale, microgreens, a wide variety of meats and poultry, eggs, cheese, milk, breads, pasta, baked goods and more! We will be open every Saturday from 10-1 January through the end of April.
