The state of Michigan has approved funding for the Saginaw Farmers' Market. The funds are coming from Michigan Strategic Fund which is part of private capital investment worth nearly $20 million. The funds are being used to renovate a building that use to be used by the Saginaw News. 

Saginaw's mayor, Dennis Browning, is hoping that this will help the urban core in the area and provide residents with healthy food options. All these renovations are part of a plan to encourage more walking in downtown Saginaw.
