- Child car seat safety check: In partnership with Safe Kids Greater Grand Rapids and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, Metro Health will host a free car seat safety inspection. Car seats and boosters will be available for purchase at a reduced cost if a replacement seat is needed. Appointments are encouraged, although not necessary. To make an appointment, call 616.252.7946.
- Fresh Start Cook-off (between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. only): Watch as four local chefs square off to prepare a fresh, healthy meal in Metro Health’s outdoor stadium kitchen using a theme ingredient available for purchase at the farm market. Chefs will have one hour to create their dishes, which will be judged by a panel on the basis of taste and healthiness. Local chef Amy Sherman will host the event. Recipes will be available at the market and online so that shoppers can buy the ingredients and try the recipes at home.
