So, I want to get the awesome folks that wrote me recommendations a Michigan-centric present to thank them for their help. I have my eye on the Michigan snuggie (http://www.mden.com/shopping/product.cg ... ?1013?2017
), but I was wondering if people had any ideas about local Ann Arbor/Michigan businesses that might have something I could give. I'm thinking local foods or crafts, something along those lines. Being able to buy online would be a definite plus since I doubt I'll be back in Michigan before late July/early August. I'm thinking about a $25-35 price range, since I've got to buy for three people. Thanks for any ideas!
The farmer's market I went to on Saturday had some nice local crafts. If they have an online presence maybe you could contact the vendors directly. That said, Zingerman's is probably the obvious and easiest choice. Thanks for reminding me to thank my recommenders!!!
Where is the farmer's marker located in AA? And what days does it operate, do you know?
I went and visited it on Saturday with some folks...I can't honestly tell you where it was, but I can't imagine it was more than a fifteen minutes walk away from the LQ. It wasn't huge, but it had some pretty cool stuff...it was right by Zingerman's (I think).
I hear that in Detroit there is the world's largest farmer's market?
RE: Michigan gifts- They make oven mitts w/ a Michigan map on them ... I've seen them at several locations. Here is one online store that carries them: --LinkRemoved--
RE: Detroit Market- I actually just went for the first time this weekend. It's called Eastern Market. It was, indeed, large. I was a little disappointed that there was so much non-local produce. There was, however, Mountain Dew jam. http://www.detroiteasternmarket.com/
