If you're looking for a place to find fresh, locally-grown food, Davison will soon be a go-to place.
Construction of a new farmer's market is expected to begin next week next to D&W Windows and Sunrooms, near the corner of Irish Road and Court in Davison Township.
The market will provide interior space for 18 vendors and two fixed-based café eateries. An open-air pavilion will also be constructed to house more than 25 vendors for the market. The market will be open year-round three days a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays.
"We are extremely excited about the possibilities the Davison Farmers Market brings to our area and the surrounding communities. Easily accessible from I-69, the new facilities will provide a friendly family environment," states part-owner Dave Wood.
Many well established and recognize vendors, who have been involved in other area farmer's markets, are already signing up to be part of the Davison Farmers Market. "It was important for us to fill the 40 foot by 304 foot building and the 30 foot by 222 foot open air pavilion with vendors that have been known throughout the community for their quality products and service," said Wood.
"Our goal is to make it the most enjoyable experience people can have when they come to the market. It will be easy to get to, have plenty of convenient parking and more important provide a safe, clean environment not only for the people but also for our vendors. We've heard positive feedback from people in many communities, including Flint, Lapeer, Grand Blanc and all over the area about the Davison Farmers Market," said Wood.
The market will create up to 20 new jobs for the area.
The project is expected to be complete on May 1, 2014.
