Wander downtown Flint and explore a surprisingly trendy and funky collection of shopping options. From the chic clothing, home decor, and fun gift selections at SHIFT to the specialty grocery items (many locally grown) available at The Local Grocer, downtown Flint retail is an eccentric urban oasis. Be sure to stop in the Shops on Saginaw, a collection of pop-up shops located on the ground floor of the Dryden Building, or visit Paul’s Pipe Shop, in business and family-owned since 1928. Other can’t-miss shopping experiences include Bedrock Apparel, Flint City T-Shirts, Flint Trading Co., and Brush Alley Skateshop – just to name a few.
Plus, a visit to downtown Flint isn’t complete without a visit to the Flint Farmers’ Market, a year-round indoor market with more than 100 vendors selling everything from produce, meat, and baked good to flowers, wine, art, and unique gifts.
