Eastern Market in Detroit is getting a $100,000 grant to promote the availability of healthy, Michigan-grown food.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan announced the new funding. She's a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farmers Market Promotion Program, which helps improve and expand farmers markets and community supported agriculture programs.
Stabenow says the grant and $123,000 in matching funding funds will be used to get more healthy food into Detroit-area neighborhoods and improve access to such food by those without transportation.
