Great Store to Visit

This is a great store for some unique souvenirs, or just to sample some of the cherry products of the region. Lots of free samples of food and wine. It's all really tasty!

The best advice for visiting Cherry Republic: bring your wallet! Not because things are outrageously priced (product are not cheap, but you are paying for superior quality!), but because you will want to buy one of everything! Cherry preserves with almond, and the Cherry hard cider were our particular favorites, but there is something good here for everyone!

We stopped here after it being recommended to us. We had very low expectations, but what a neat place. We loved getting to sample everything. There were fun things for the kids to do like playing in the cherry pit. The customer service was superb and we liked the way they wrap up gifts. I would recommend getting your stuff... More

This is a great place to visit while you are in Traverse City. They have everything you can imagine....and then some...using cherries. There are several free samples out all over the store for you to try. There is a wine area and a restaurant inside also. If you purchase anything they offer to gift wrap it for you. I had... More

So nice to be able to sample before you buy, or try their products incorporated into recipes at their newly added restaurant. Also, what an easy way to recognize & thank the pet sitter when you get home With everything from BBQ sauce to trail mix to chocolate covered cherries, they have everything to keep your northern Michigan memories alive.

Cherry Republic has every type of food you can think of made from cherries. Everything is delicious, lots of free samples including cherry wine and hard cider. Salespeople are very helpful. They ship their treats as well. There is a restaurant and bakery to enjoy treats as you shop. Tried the grilled cheese with savory fig cherry jam, wonderful. Love... More

We've always been a fan of this store. Excellent quality cherry-related stuff, from salsas, BBQ sauce, chocolate covered cherries, drinks, etc. They expanded the store to include a café and cool tree house for kids to play. All the displays were very nice, clean store and friendly service.

My favorite part was the free samples available of almost all of their products. Cherry Republic has a great thing going! If you have the time, take the... More
