Wellness Starts at a Farmers Market

Fulton Street Farmers MarketOne of the best things you can do for yourself is to eat healthily, and what better place to help you do that than to shop at a farmers market?  Grand Rapidians have several to choose from, but the “grand dame” is Fulton Street Farmers Market  which opened in 1922.  The farmers market movement is growing, and most Michigan residents live close to at least one farmers market and/or to markets based at farms like those on “the Ridge” in Alpine Township.

Fulton Street Farmer’s Market is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday from 8 am – 3 pm. Be sure to schedule a shopping trip to the Market this summer.  And, take a peek at some of the cool LLC titles on eating more naturally.

JSTOR Daily: Where News Meets Its Scholarly Match

I recently discovered JSTOR Daily – and love it!  JSTOR Daily is an online publication that publishes “weekly feature articles that explore the sometimes-hidden depths of newsy topics.” Basically, the editors take a popular culture topic – something very much “in the news” or on your Facebook page – and they provide a well-written readable essay on the subject along with links to scholarly JSTOR articles.  GRCC licenses many JSTOR database subsets, so, while you have easiest access on-campus,  you can logon to JSTOR here with your last name and 7-digit Raider number and read the scholarly articles, too.  Read smarter with JSTOR Daily.

Pure Michigan

Pure Michigan logoWe’ve all seen the Pure Michigan commercials on TV. If you’re like us, those ads make you want to get in a car and drive to the beach, a winery, the Bridge, a Tigers baseball game,  the Falls, “outa town!”  Before you hit the open road, consider combining that Pure Michigan road trip with a Michigan-themed book.  GRCC’s Library has a great selection of Michigan Notable Books – some fiction, non-fiction, and even a few children’s books.  Check them out! Pure Michigan!
