When West Michigan Co-op (“the Co-op”) opened for business in November 2006, the organization became the first year-round local food source in the Grand Rapids area and only the second online farmers market in the nation. Five years later, the Co-op is celebrating its anniversary and continued growth with a promotion for new members.
When Wendy asked me to write about a kid-oriented place along Kent Harvest Trails for Eat Local! West Michigan, I immediately thought of Koetsier’s Greenhouse. They are one of the only places along the Kent Harvest Trails that is mostly indoors and geared toward the younger set (ages 10 and under.) This is the place to go on Fridays or Saturdays through the end of October, Rain or Shine!
