For 16 years, the Fulton Street Artisans Market has been a marketplace for Michigan artists & makers to come together, sell their goods, and share their passions with each other and the local Grand Rapids community.
Founded by the artists back in 2005, the mission of the Artisans Market was to give local community members an opportunity to not only buy handmade goods & artwork, but to interact and learn about the creative processes involved. It also serves as a hub for West Michigan artists to network & build relationships with other talented & passionate people.
Starting May 5th, you can get your mid-week stretch on every Wednesday from 10AM-11AM! Classes are for ALL levels, ages, bodies, and people. The only requirements are bringing your own mat and good vibes!
