Midtown


The Midtown moniker may not be as familiar as neighboring districts such as Heritage Hill or East Hills. But that doesn't mean the neighborhood lacks status and popularity. 

Anchored by the The Fulton Street Farmers Market, Midtown offers a great selection of shops, eateries, delicatessens and much more. These and other local establishments stand among Grand Rapids' more highly regarded destinations.

 

Midtown is a friendly and refreshingly ordinary neighborhood that features a robust supply of modestly historic homes and a rich walkable experience.
