About this grant

In 2002, the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation began operating and maintaining the Flint Farmers Market. Since then, the corporation and its supporting organization, the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, have installed a new electrical system, repaved the parking lot, added vendor variety, increased advertising, and expanded programs for low-income customers. The market is a centrally located, countywide destination for fresh produce and locally grown food. During the grant period, the grantee will repair and replace portions of the roof and ceiling beams.
