Plumb’s Market – Hillary Heeren
On Saturday October eighth I visited Plumb’s grocery store in Alpine Township. Unsurprisingly, there were quite a few customers eager to try the samples of Michigan Apples available. While handing out samples I was able to hand out many recipes featuring Michigan Apples! I enjoyed talking with customers about the many varieties and helping them to discover a Michigan Apple suited to their specific taste.
I had several customers mention they were related to the Michigan Apple industry. It was interesting to hear their stories about their family farms, past Michigan Apple Queens, as well as how they feel about this year’s growing season. By the end of my time at the store I believe many customers left with delicious Michigan Apples to either bake a Michigan Apple pie, try one of the recipes they picked up, or simply to enjoy fresh.
