About this grant

Seven years ago, the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation took over the management of the Flint Farmers Market. During that time, the corporation and its supported organization, the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, have upgraded the facilities, added vendor variety, increased advertising, and expanded programs for low-income customers. The market is a countywide destination, and during the summer, it is not uncommon for 5,000 customers to visit on any given Saturday. During the grant period, the grantee will continue making improvements to the Flint Farmers Market by repairing the parking lot, which has deteriorated from consistent usage over time.
