Located in the heart of cherry country,
Elk Rapids supports a variety of
agriculture and agri-tourism. Whether
you want to pick it yourself or let
someone else prepare it for you, there's
fresh, local produce around every corner.
Orchards.
Antrim County boasts 300 farms with hundreds more in the surrounding
counties. From May through December you can stop in at any number of
local farms to buy everything from hanging plants to cherries to apples to
pumpkins. Pick the fruit yourself, or let others do the work for you. Sample
fruit right off the tree, or enjoy fresh made jams and pies. Stick around
through the fall for hayrides, u-pick pumpkin patches, and corn mazes.
Farmers Market.
Let the produce come to you at the Elk Rapids Farmers Market. Located
in front of the Chamber of Commerce building, the market opens June
7 and operates every Friday morning through October 11. Vendors from
across northern Michigan bring seasonal fruits and vegetables, baked
goods, dairy products, crafts, and much more.
Restaurants.
Sit back and let others do the cooking for you. Elk Rapids offers a bit of
everything family, casual, and fine dining options. We're also less than
20 minutes from Traverse City, one of Bon Appetite's Top 10 Foodie Cities
in the country. Look for dinner specials featuring the best of northern
Michigan's seasonal treasures.
Wineries.
Not hungry? You can still enjoy Michigan's bounty at a tour of any one of
the area's wineries. Travel the area to sample the best of the vine.
Roadside Convenience.
Whether you decide to stay in Elk Rapids or just pass through, you won't
get far without passing a convenient, well-stocked roadside stand. Up and
down US-31 or along M-72, on the highway or one of the scenic back
roads stop off frequently to taste the finest local flavors.
