The Westside Farmers’ Market is proudly bringing more farm fresh food to Ann Arbor’s Westside. The number of vendors, demos, outreach, and events has grown in a big way over the past three years.

Banana Bread & Chocolate Banana Bread at Zingerman’s Mail Order!
Go bananas, 2 ways!
Mail Order’s Mo says:

New! This year the diabolical pastry enablers at Zingerman’s Bakehouse focused their dark magic on classic banana bread. Like our hugely popular sourcream coffeecake and magic brownies, banana bread instantly conjures up nostalgia for home baking. The thing is, this loaf tastes better than what mom used to make (no offense intended, moms, it’s just hard to beat our Bakehouse). There are no nuts in these loaves, just the classic charms: flour, cane sugar, real butter and fresh eggs, a touch of Madagascar vanilla and two freshly peeled bananas per loaf. Chocolate banana bread is the same story, with the addition of huge chunks of chocolate. Wrapped in tissue, each loaf comes packed in its own colorfully illustrated box.  Each serves 5-7.


The Zingerman’s Creamery is featuring Bridgewater as the September Cheese of the Month. The Bridgewater is one of our most flavorful cheeses. Made from fresh cow’s milk, this super-rich, double-cream, soft-ripened orb is spiked with cracked and whole black Telicherry peppercorns for a full-flavored peppery zing that perfectly complements the slight citrus and gentle mushroom notes of the paste.

Fridays and Saturdays at the Zingerman’s Bakehouse also mean Special Bakes, limited-edition loaves available for just a weekend. This weekend it’s delicious Black Olive Farm Bread! This popular loaf is a crusty round of our signature farm bread studded with marinated black olives. If there’s any left it makes really tasty croutons for an antipasto salad or bread crumbs for eggplant parmesan.
