Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time for picnics and BBQs!
At Michigan Good Food Fund, we’re honored to support local entrepreneurs working to bring good food to Michiganders across the state.
We pulled together some delicious products that would be a perfect addition to any summertime meal.
This summer (and all year long), shop local from wherever you are by supporting Michigan good food businesses.
