WHAT?
6/18 Special Events:
*** TRACTOR DAY ***
*** STRAWBERRY JAM MAKING CLASS ***

The market will offer seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, and local foods. Our Grill Benzie Food Truck will be there selling fresh food with ingredients grown onsite or sourced locally. We will also be offering free daily nutrition and culinary demonstrations at 3:30 and 5:00, open to the public. You can also take this time to grab your family and walk our edible trail system that lines the property or play through our edible mini golf course! 

From 2-6pm, there will be some tractors on display. Bring your kids…or the kid in you to enjoy learning about and seeing some tractors up close and personal. Free! 

Strawberry Jam Making Class will take place in the studio house kitchen. Attendees will learn the basics of jam making-which can be applied to many of the fruits coming in season. Chris, the mom of Grow Benzie's executive director Josh Stoltz will lead these workshops. $7 includes a jar of jam. One session will take place at 3:30pm and another at 4:30pm. If you just want to pop in to see the process, you are welcome to do so (no cost!).
