Happy Friday!

This has been a fun week, and the weather couldn't have been better. 

On Wednesday, I brought the fine folks from Argus Farm Stop and RoosRoast on "Live in the D" to showcase their missions and how a Michigan apple can take many forms. (You'll see what I mean).

Also on Wednesday, we bade farewell to food truck season at Ann Arbor Farmers Market with a gorgeous evening of delicious food, and people were using the added seating in the new plaza as construction in Kerrytown continues.

Have a great weekend and remember it is U-M homecoming so, a) Go Blue! and b) be prepared for traffic when traveling near the Big House or visiting downtown on Saturday.

Feature interview of the week:

We’ve got a wonderful community of small farms in the area, and many of those local farmers buy seed from me. I feel very honored when that’s the case because they don’t have a lot of budget to play games and I really respect the work they’re doing.

- Eric Kampe, Founder of Ann Arbor Seed Company
