The Fulton Street Boutique Market is returning to the Fulton Street Farmer's Market at 1145 Fulton St E, on Thursday April, 29, starting at 4p.m.

You can shop from more than 20 local businesses including clothing boutiques, skin care artisans, and accessory makers.

The market has also teamed up with local nonprofit, Treetops Collective, an organization that helps young girls and women undergoing refugee resettlement find their footing in West Michigan.

Masks are required, sanitizing stations will be available, and social distancing guidelines will be in place, with all vendors spaced out.

Grab a bite from a local food truck and enjoy music while you shop.

Carmen Foster, one of the organizers, tells Fox 17 she and others were inspired to start the market as a way to support local boutiques during the pandemic and to give the community a chance to get out and have a safe shopping experience. The first Fulton Street Boutique Market happened in fall of 2020 and they hope to hold another one this coming fall.
