Eat Healthy Eat Local Festival Saturday in St. Johns
In December of 2015, I did an article about a Michigan Made product called Oh Mi Organics. Click here to see it. It's a chocolate company out of St. Johns run by Brent and Megen Hurst.
This Saturday is the Eat Healthy Eat Local Festival in St, Johns and there is all kinds of stuff going on. Click here to see their Facebook event page. Proceeds from events like this festival are used to help open an organic grocery store and farm-to-table restaurant in St. Johns.
Saturday the event goes on from 10-6pm. I will be there broadcasting live with the station and getting people signed up to score Foreigner and Styx tickets with other WMMQ goodies.
