Tomorrow, from 3:00 to 7:00 PM, there’s going to be a special, indoor farmers’ market at the Corner Brewery. I’m told that 20 vendors will be on hand, more than half of whom will be local produce growers. Among the others planning to attend are Zingerman’s Creamery, Grassfield’s Cheese, Ugly Mug coffee, the Ypsi Food Co-op, Maggie’s Baked Goods, Stone Hearth Bakery and Pilar’s Tamales (to go only). And, from what I understand, there will also be folks there selling beef, pork, buffalo, and chicken. (None of which, I’m assured, carries the “Slaughtered on Water Street” seal.)
And, you’ll be happy to know, this is just first of four such events. The Winter Market will also be held on November 24th, December 8th and December 22nd.
Oh, I’m also told by folks at the Brewery (on the corner of Forest and Norris in Ypsilanti) that they’ll be honoring Happy Hour whenever the Winter Market is in session.
