I noticed a post about this last week on Good Food Hunting and today I got a comment about it from Ang, so I thought I’d make a post reminding people. Select Michigan Day on the lawn of the Capitol is this Thursday, September 18.
We went to this event back in July and walked away with a lot of great stuff. I’m sure we’ll make another trip downtown now that some of the fall vegetables are starting to come in.

Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS) and the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) Select Michigan program, with support from the Michigan Farmers’ Market Association (MIFMA) and the Food Bank Council of Michigan (FBCM), have already partnered together to keep momentum going in Michigan for local food!
“Select Michigan Day” has gained tremendous momentum over the past three years as more consumers are realizing the taste, health and economic benefits of buying local products.
