Older visitors can browse the market's squash and jams, the bakery's apple pies, and the apple kitchen's fixings for creating your own caramel apple.

Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters Café achieved a milestone in 2007. In only 365 days, their staff roasted more than one million pounds of coffee beans, or the equivalent of roughly 10 million last-minute term papers. And they continue to rack up impressive numbers on a daily basis. They consistently roast more than 100 types of singe-origin, blends, and Fair Trade-certified beans from across the world, and for some batches, they add more than 40 specialty flavors, including mint, chocolate, and cinnamon.
Some of these freshly roasted beans travel to retailers throughout the midwest, though much of the coffee stays on-site to the delight of local patrons. At the cafe, baristas serve food and pour countless cups of Berres Brothers' most popular flavor, Highlander Grogg: an indulgent blend of caramel, butterscotch, and hazelnut. Additionally, their retail shop brims with the aromas of Berres Brothers' full selection, as well as coffee gear such as grinders and french presses.
