Hamtown Farms Is Saved; Eastern Market Has All The Thanksgiving Things

Photo Hamtown Farms Facebook

HAMTRAMCK— They had quite the scare, but Hamtown Farms is saved after a close call. The community farm worked to engage social media and local restaurants in a grassroots campaign to raise enough funds to outbid Kowalski at auction. They successfully used indiegogo to raise $10,000 for their efforts, and they only lost one of their seven lots (the lot lost was planted with trees). [Curbed]

EASTERN MARKET— Don't forget that tomorrow a special pre-Thanksgiving event is taking place at Eastern Market. The Thanksgiving market will be held in Shed 5 (which is indoors and heated) Tuesday, November 26th from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. It's the perfect opportunity to add Michigan foods, specialty goods, and trimmings to the holiday.
