Here we are, talking about food again, but I can't say anything other than we like our food up here in the mitten state. We could talk about all types of Michigan munchies from Faygo, Vernor's, sugar factory, or even olive burgers and still have hours of content to rummage through. Finding the hidden gems is always hard to find, mostly by word of mouth, and once you find one you hang onto it forever.

Recently, we have seen the famous "Taste Of" festivals popping up in cities all over the country. Michigan has joined the trend recently with Grand Rapids being the first city to do so when they had their Taste of Grand Rapids Festival a few weeks ago. I think you can see where this is going and more cities are making their way into this elite company.

We wanted to create a fun and safe environment for everyone to come out and enjoy local eats. We’ve received such an overwhelming response to this event we have surrounding cities joining in as well!
