Fall and winter are busy times for all of us. And after a year of working to build back better from the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 Holiday Season is no exception. Add to that the year-end bookkeeping, social (distance) engagements, busy storefront hours, and personal holiday shopping, it's no wonder these months fly by. It's enough to overwhelm anyone.

Our Grand Rapids area feature is Martha’s Vineyard and its child companies. This unique collection of businesses takes up a block in the Heritage Hill neighborhood and is a healthy mix of made-in-Michigan products, house-made edibles, and goods from around the world.
Second generation leader, Ilana Chamelly, sat down with Local First to share their story.
Fall and winter are busy times for all of us. Between year-end bookkeeping, social (distance) engagements, busy storefront hours, and personal holiday shopping, it's no wonder these months fly by. And this year is no exception - plus we have the added stress of rapidly changing safety precautions. It's enough to overwhelm anyone. But it doesn't have to be when we take advantage of our community resources!
What was your favorite dish at Fork Fest this year?? Did anyone else notice the (unintentional) deviled egg theme? And how about the artist's workshops and pop-up market? What a great event! Thanks to everyone who came and supported our local food system. Let's keep up the good work and support these folks over the holidays. Make to let them know you saw them at Fork Fest!
The holiday season has arrived! Here are just a few ways you can support our Local First members in the next few weeks.
