Ann Arbor Farmer's Market

Here is my report on my visit on the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market on Saturday, April 10, 2010:

It was warmer than usual sunny day. It was packed market today, parking was hard to come by. It’s amazing to see this when some places don’t start their markets until June or later. This is the first time I have been here since last fall. My goal was just to check out what was being sold and pick up a couple things.

What I Saw:
Many vendors were selling plants, including cool crop vegetables and herbs. We checkout out a vendor selling grass-fed beef. We hope to try some out in the future. One vendor was selling pea sprouts, which seemed to be very popular as he was sold out well before the market closed. There were a couple vendors that still had apples and apple cider from this past season. It was a great year for apples in Michigan, a cooler than average summer, made for the best apple harvest in a decade.

What I Bought:
A dozen farm fresh brown chicken eggs
Mutsu apples (seconds) – Wasem’s Fruit Farm
1/2 gallon apple cider – Nemeth Orchards

  1. […] Last week at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market, I got to sample some apple cider from the friendly people from Nemeth Orchards. The sample sold me on buying a half gallon. Their cider is sweet with enough tartness to it, to not make it overbearing. Whenever I am drinking cider I want to get the feeling I am sticking a straw into an apple and drinking the juice within. I get that feeling with this cider. It contains no preservatives and has not been pasteurized. It is definitely one of the best fresh ciders I have had in Michigan. […]
