The Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market Expo takes place this week at the DeVos Place Convention Center in Grand Rapids.
The trade show runs Tuesday through Thursday. Growers, farm marketers and industry officials are expected. Organizers say nearly 4,000 people from 41 states and Canada attended in 2009.
For the second consecutive year, the Michigan Greenhouse Growers Expo is being held at the same time. One registration fee covers both conferences.
Michigan State University Extension educators have planned dozens of sessions and workshops. Speakers from other states and the U.S. Department of Agriculture also are expected.
