The Farmer’s Hand, located in Detroit’s historic Corktown neighborhood, is getting into the holiday spirit with a sleigh-load of events, experiences and gifts that are perfect for the season.

The locally-owned café and market carries a wide array of high-quality Michigan-made products, including curated sets that aim to take the guesswork out of gifting.

The gift sets range in price from $40 to $90.

The Farmer’s Hand is also offering a selection of Michigan-grown Christmas trees and locally-cut firewood. And, they are accepting orders for their holiday catering boxes, filled with dinner staples and farm-fresh produce for 4 to 8 people, as well as for a variety of Zingerman’s Bakery breads.

Bringing more good cheer, The Farmer’s Hand will be hosting a set of in-store tasting events, with a focus on hand-crafted, locally-sourced last-minute gift ideas. The first event, on December 21, will focus on Michigan wines that pair well with holiday dinners, and the second event, on December 28, will highlight sparkling wines that are perfect for toasting. Cheesemonger Jessica Mark of Greenpoint Cheese & Meat will be on-hand to share pairing and gifting recommendations.
