Vendors are preparing for a flood of people as the new Downtown Market opens up tomorrow in Grand Rapids.
Community leaders hope the giant new indoor market will become a year-round regional attraction.
The smell of fresh apple pie from the hot pink Sweetie-licious bakery is the first thing you notice inside the new Downtown Market. It’s one of Linda Hunt’s national award-winning pies made with Michigan apples.
Hunt’s small bakery in DeWitt makes more than homemade pies. They make “snickerdoodles” or “whoopee-pies,” and cupcakes among other things.
“Pretty much everything here is awesome,” Hunt said.
