Almost every product at the Cherry Republic store is available for sampling, which is nice. We love all of the products here, especially the Cherry Jam, Boomchunka cookies, and dark chocolate covered cherries. We also enjoyed a tasting of their cherry wine, which is very good. On the expensive side, but their products are great gifts and delicious!

I love all of the products, and especially the new savory... More

Been coming to this location for years. Stopped by today and they've done a complete Reno inside. Great set up and now serves food. Friendly and a traverse city staple.

Cherry Republic is a very strange idea for a store at the base, and I myself were a skeptic on first hearing about it. Having a store where every item of food or drink contains cherry as the main ingredient seems like a business with a finite amount of goods to sell. Will you ever be more shocked when you... More

Kids loved visiting the store and trying different samples. We went back several times during our visit. We bought several cherry teas.

Great Selection. Nice to try before you buy. Unique Products. Great variety of Cherry products: jam, salsa, bbq sauce, dried cherries, chocolate covered cherries, boomchunka cookies, toppings, pop, wine..... My favorites: Cherry Almond Butter (Jam), chocolate covered cherries, cherry ginger ale pop. One disappointment/negative: They charge you a 1% fee that supposedly goes toward preserving the area farmlands. It may... More

The samples of the foods and the wine makes this a plus for sure. The chocolate covered cherries are a favorite for my family but there are plenty of other items worth tasting. The prices are a bit steep in my opinion but are great quality too. Worth the trip for sure.

So many goodies! Taste test most anything in this store. Everything is exceptional. I bought the spicy cherry BBQ sauce and it is delightful on chicken! Their cherry salsa is great and their sweets are wonderful! A fun experience and great way to take Traverse City away with you.
