Grand Rapids Downtown Market Autumn Themed Classes start Friday!

The air is finally feeling a bit crisp and nothing screams fall more than enjoying Autumn themed activities! The Downtown Market holds classes regularly but there are some “awesomely autumn” classes that are all hands on, span a variety of age levels and taste preferences and a fabulous way to spend some time celebrating the season with family and friends. (You can find the complete brochure for classes for the reminder of the year here.)

  • Autumn Nights in the Mediterranean: Friday, 10/14 6pm – 8:30pm – I love that the market is incorporating some fresh flavors of the Mediterranean into their Fall lineup of featured classes! You’ll learn how to make souvlaki, an olive tapenade and become a professional at using olive oil for your meals. Class age recommendation is 16 and up, costs $65/person and you can register here.
  • Stews & Brews: Tuesday, 10/18 6pm – 8:30pm – What better way to warm up than with some hearty stews (classic gumbo specifically for this class), enjoy a beer and some bar snacks while socializing with friends and making new ones? This hands-on class has a 21 and up age limit, costs $65/person and you can register here.
