Default Area Produce stands

Hi, I was wondering if you have a link for area produce stands. I came across one last summer on Clyde Park a little past Meijers. She grows all in her yard and sells them out front. Are there any more in the area that you know of. She had really good prices and a good verity of stuff, and I really don't like the farmers markets because they are kind of high priced and pushy. The home stands seem to be lower priced and better quality and much more friendly! Would like to find more if possible since the stand I found is a ways away from me. Thank you If you don't have links maybe it would be an idea to make a list for people like me, and it would keep the our money in our city and help people to eat healthier. thanks

That's a big undertaking. If you'd like to gather that info and post it here, please feel free.

You can get a rough approximation with zip codes, but school district lines in Michigan don't necessarily follow any other boundary lines known to man. (Forest Hills is particularly messy in that regard- parts of Ada, Cascade, Grand Rapids Township, Plainfield Township, etc. may be Forest Hills or they may be Northview, Lowell, or EGR instead.) When you get serious about buying a home or signing a lease, I'd call the school district directly and confirm the district.

This should remain a sticky. I've referred a lot of people to it over the years and just came looking for it again to share with someone

What atinic said. It's too hard to keep it up to date, as things change so frequently.
