The Silver Lake Sand Dunes Apple & BBQ Festival 2020 could not be held (another casualty of COVID-19), but our market is open! Sampling is prohibited this year, but Dave & our staff can steer you to the fruit your taste buds will love! Of course, we have our SweeTango(R) apples, early Honeycrisp, and Zestar! apples, along with Elstar, Ginger Gold, and Chestnut gourmet crabapples! Local Bartlett Pears & Babygold Cling peaches, and our Freestone Peaches, are in season. We have several varieties of plums–the ugly but sweetest Green Gage, the more tart Starking Delicious, and some purple plums including Stanley types. If you haven’t tried our Grapes, it’s a good time to get some–our seedless Jupiter & Himrod, and the soft-seeded Summerset, are all delicious. Our grape tomatoes in orange & red are conveniently packaged together in a small pack, or you can purchase either color separately. My pick for little tomatoes are the orange Toranjina cherry tomatoes. Outside, you’ll find our freshly picked “the Best” Sweet Corn, our winter squash, Bell & Jalapeno Peppers, Tomatillos, big tomatoes, & local Pickles. You’ll find freshly pressed Fleming’s Cider in our display cooler, along with Country Dairy Chocolate Milk, Moochies, & cheese.
We are open 8 until 6 Mon-Sat,, & you can call 231-873-7523 for curbside pickup if you prefer. We accept EBT, P-EBT, Double Up Food Bucks, Project Fresh, Senior Market Fresh, credit cards & cash. Our sweet corn is available self-serve after hours & Sunday(cash only, $5.50/13 ears or 50 cents each).
