Western Market

Muskegon’s Western Market has a vibrant history. It began to give small businesses and start-ups a space to showcase their work in Muskegon’s prime location. And eventually become a bustling, thriving marketplace for large and small vendors alike.

Downtown Muskegon started to lose its importance when a local shopping mall was demolished. This left empty lots open along the sidelines with no one to fill the space. After much deliberation, it was decided that small chalets would be given to vendors at a low rate. This idea was so successful that some first-time vendors used their profits to open their storefronts around the same location.

There are 17 chalets up for grabs, and the waiting list is long. The city staff announces who will take up the space and feature their products annually. The diversity of the businesses also increases every year, making it an excellent marketplace for customers seeking variety.

The market runs from May to October, and there is a special holiday market around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. There are also special events at specific hours, so check the market’s timings before visiting.

The Monet Garden of Muskegon

One of Muskegon’s many hidden gems is the Monet Garden, a miniature version of the famous garden in France.

The park has gorgeous water lilies and a picturesque blue bridge. You can walk on a pebbled walkway that will lead you to a pond and spot archways covered in roses. Every plant that is featured in this garden is a replica of the ones in the original Monet garden.

The garden’s maintenance runs on volunteering and donations. The garden enthusiasts plant new saplings every season and meticulously look after its ecosystem.
