About this grant

The Flint City Market, commonly known as the Farmer’s Market, has been in operation since 1937. The market is a community gathering place, a local landmark and an active shopping venue comprised of local businesses and family farmers. In addition, it partners with the Women, Infants and Children program’s "Project Fresh," and participates in the Bridge program that allows food stamps to be redeemed for fresh produce and other healthy food items.Funding will support improvements to the market that include plumbing, electrical and systems repair, as well as installation of a security gate.Uptown Reinvestment Corporation was established in 1999 to develop a downtown redevelopment strategy that incorporates both private and public partners.
