For all the thousands of folks who ride the academic tide out of Ann Arbor in spring and back for fall, you may be noticing a few changes in the local food scene.
- Mark’s Carts has brought popup dining to Ann Arbor in a lovely setting on Washington St. near Ashley:
- A couple of notable upscale eateries opened to positive reviews downtown… Find out more in the September Observer, coming soon to http://arborweb.com/ !
- The wonderful HomeGrown Festival (including locally produced beer and wine for sale) is right around the corner:
Saturday, September 10, 2011, 6 -11 pm, Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market, Kerrytown, 315 Detroit Street, Ann Arbor http://homegrownfestival.org/
- The next day, in the same will be the annual Kerrytown BookFest, which doesn’t forget local foodies when creating its events. At Hollanders, you’ll find a lecture-demo on Tasting and Touring Michigan’s Homegrown Food (noon) by author Jaye Beeler and photographer Dianne Burdick, and discussion of Ma Baseema: Chaldean Middle Eastern Cooking with a Chaldean Flair (2 p.m.) with editor Jane Shallal. Full schedule at
Doesn’t that sound like a good way to pass the historic day of 9/11, in the company of community?
