“Great Sunday Activity”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Nice new facilities for a great market, lots of diversity in vendors. Prices are average for this type of venue, defiantly not inexpensive. But you can have a bloody mary on Sundays from the make your own bloody mary bar and enjoy the experience of the market.

“Makes me want to move to gr”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Best market! There are a lot of different things to shop for here, from cupcakes to seafood to ice cream and coffee. Fresh tea, chocolate truffles,and so much more. The cupcakes from little sweetie are wonderful! They have a ton of fresh seafood, as well as different types of meat. The ice cream is very good. Every one that works in here is very nice. It's like a farmers market with more up scale twist.

It is not as big or have the variety of St Lawrence in Toronto or Granville Island in Vancouver, but it is very clean and everything there is very amazing.

“Beautiful but more of a novelty than anything. ”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped in the Downtown Market this past Saturday. It was apparent somebody spent alot of money on this project. After looking for parking for 15 minutes (small dedicated lot was full) we made or way inside. The building was beautiful, however, as we browsed through the vendors, we found that most of the offerings came up short. The prices were VERY expensive and not justifiable for the most part. This market seems touristy and definitely not sustainable for weekly grocery shopping. This visit was my first and last.

“Nice addition to Grand Rapids!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

I stopped at the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids for the first time last week, and already went back! The facility is very clean, modern, and inviting. It's nice to have multiple QUALITY vendors in one, indoor location. You do get what you pay for... The slightly higher prices here gives us access to better products. It is great to have fresh options so close to downtown: fresh fish, meats, pastas, produce, breads, and an array of sweet treats. I had a tasty fish sandwich for lunch at Fish Lads my first visit, then stopped at the market again Friday to pick up everything we needed from the different vendors to make dinner at home with my family. Before we left we enjoyed some ice cream, cupcakes and drinks from the juice bar. We will definitely be back!
