Meridian farmers’ market connects more than just local community

In the J.C. Penney corridor of Meridian Mall, two vendors stand next to one another. A young woman with short curly hair pulled back in a hat cuts blocks of cheese on a table. Next to her table is a man selling mushrooms in wooden boxes. Both are very friendly with their customers, giving out recommendations and ideas of how to utilize their products. The two vendors come from Grand Rapids.
