It's going to be bananas at the Downtown Market this Wednesday... literally and figuratively.

On Wednesday 6/26 the Downtown Market, in Grand Rapids, is hosting its first-ever Fruit Fest which will celebrate all things fruit including kids activities and specials on tasty fruit-inspired drinks and meals from the vendors. For example, Sushi Market will feature a Tiger Roll which includes

Crabmeat, mango, cucumber topped with ebi shrimp and avocado served with honey wasabi sauce.

& Aperitivo will have a Piña Blanco Slushie (!!) which is a

White wine, pineapple, and szechuan slushie

Michigan's own, world-famous Banana Car will be on site for photo-ops as well.

You will also be able to buy fruit and fruit products such as jams and pastries from local producers under the outdoor Market Shed. And while the kids are sipping on a special strawberry drink you can have your own fruity adult beverage to enjoy. Win-win for everyone!

Fruit Fest goes from 10a-2p and is free to attend.
