The delectable array of dining options in Elkhart Lake is one of the reasons travelers keep coming back to stay every summer. With the Downtown Farmers & Artisans Market, the food scene is even more impressive—showcasing the locally grown produce that the land has to offer from June through October. Here is a closer look at what the Farmers Market has in store and how it is helping local restaurants support the farm to table movement.
Amazing fresh selections
Regionally grown organic produce is all around at the Farmers Market, so shoppers can pick up a basket of fruits and vegetables that will create the most tantalizing summer meals. As you shop, you can also enjoy the aroma of freshly baked artisan breads and other treats. Arts and crafts line the market for those in search of creative gifts or home décor.
Inspiration for local chefs
Elkhart Lake’s restaurant chefs flock to the Farmers Market for the freshest possible ingredients to feature on their menus. Many chefs also take inspiration to start their own vegetable and herb gardens on-site, so they may have the most vibrant flavors around. These lovely gardens add to the already beautiful ambience of alfresco lakeside dining.
Exceptional wine pairings
Good wines need good food to unlock their full flavor potential, and the Farmers Market supports the smaller farms and producers focused only on high-quality foods. Lake Street Café is just one of many restaurants where you can enjoy fantastic wines with uniquely inspired food straight from the farm. In fact, their wine list of more than 600 wines has earned them a Wine Spectator Award.
