Gabe’s Country Smoked Meats, at Maple City Road and M-72

Spring Blossoms in Grand Traverse

When I woke up this morning I could almost hear the blooming trees outside.  So I hopped in the car to take a ride through the heart of Leelanau County to see how the apple blossoms were coming along.  As you head towards the lake (Lake Michigan) from Traverse City on M-72, you’ll find a cute little local market on the corner at Maple City Road. I’ve been meaning to check it out, so I decided today was the day.

Since this is a main through-way from Traverse City out to Lake Michigan, Empire, Glen Arbor and Leland, it would be a great place to stop and fill the cooler with a picnic lunch. These sandwiches were already made up in the cooler and were very reasonable priced at 2.99 a piece. You could easily feed a crowd without breaking the bank.

Gabe’s is a cozy little market that has that “up north” feel and by that I mean it’s nothing fancy and far from a big chain style.  And it smelled delicious.  They offered a variety of local meats and cheeses as well as some hot and ready to eat hotdogs and sausage that were made on site.

This carving on the log was the first thing I saw when I walked up to the shop and at the time I thought it was pretty cool.
