  • Ypsilanti Farmers Market 16 S. Washington street Ypsilanti, MI 48198 (map)

Enjoy great food and drink amidst our blossoming urban farm to benefit Growing Hope. Our dinner series features three special evenings featuring an artisan-prepared meal by notable regional chefs, delicious beer and wines, and show-stopping desserts.

Each evening is its own unique experience, crafted from beginning to end by the guest chefs' talents and tastes. The evening begins with an appetizer and cocktail hour, followed by a meal served in our hoophouse, and ends with a dazzling dessert.

October's dinner features celebrated local Chef Brandon Johns of Grange Kitchen & Bar. This team has wowed our guests since we started doing Chefs in the Garden over 15 years ago, and we are so excited to have them return! Sweet Heather Anne will be capping off the evening with her masterful sweet treats. Guests will also enjoy a selection of beer and wine donated by Cultivate Coffee and TapHouse.
