The Holt Farmers' Market in the old Delhi Twp. Fire Station on Cedar St. in Holt
I’m not sure why, but J has been wanting some squash soup lately. I needed to make a run to Kroger so I was going to pick up a squash, but for some reason, I remembered that the Holt Farmers’ Market has hours on Thursday so I decided to make two stops and pick up a few things fresh from the farm.
I first visited the Holt Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago. It’s housed in the old Delhi Township fire house right along Cedar Street. There’s a nice big parking lot next to it and all of the vendors are inside and out of the elements. During peak season, there is room to move outside should move vendors sign on. During the summer, the Market is open Thursday’s from 4-7:30, but today was the last Thursday they are going to be open this year.

Just caught this article in the Grand Rapids Press.
A film crew from the Food Network showed up on Thursday to film the blueberry’s last hurrah for Marc Summers’ show, “Unwrapped.”
Producer Tammy Sorter and videographer Reid Riddell rolled into Holland to show their viewers how blueberries are picked, processed and sold.
At West Michigan Processing Co-op Inc. in Holland, the film crew captured assembly-line workers dumping the blueberries into a gigantic, rattling machine that cleans them with a disinfectant before they’re sorted by hand by a bevy of women, then packaged and labeled.
The segment probably won’t air until next spring. I used to love Unwrapped. I still watch it occasionally, but not as much anymore. Still, cool to hear about a film crew coming to Michigan to shoot a segment.
