Downtown Market hosting ‘Dip Days’ menu showcase


The Grand Rapids Downtown Market will highlight a selection of dipped foods from its vendors every day this month as part of “Dip Days.”

Throughout June, the Downtown Market — at 435 Ionia Ave. SW — will feature a showcase of themed foods, from cheese dips to French dip sandwiches to chocolate-dunked treats, each day during regular business hours as part of its Dip Days event.

“We are highlighting a selection of deliciously dipped, dunked and drizzled foods from around the market hall,” the market said.
