All over Greenfield Village, visitors will be treated to a bevy of special food-focused activities and experiences. Enjoy daily cooking demonstrations in our historic homes, featuring different seasonally-inspired recipes each weekend, all specific to each home’s region and time period.
Each day during Fall Flavor Weekends, from 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m., taste some of the best of Michigan’s autumnal offerings during product samplings at the Village Store. And every Sunday, join The Henry Ford’s executive Chef Nick in the Village Pavilion for a cooking demonstration of more modern gourmet autumn-inspired treats, using locally-sourced ingredients.
Take the richness of the local harvest home with you during our Fall Farmer’s Market, September 25 and October 2 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Meet dozens of Michigan growers and producers – including Greenfield Village’s Herb Society, with seasonal creations straight from the gardens and fields of The Henry Ford – who will be selling everything from vegetables and meat to bread and honey in the Village Pavilion.
Several special events are also in store during Fall Flavor Weekends, including:
— Ferment, a special beer, wine, cider and food sampling event September 18 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Meet some of Michigan’s best beverage crafters and taste a selection of delicious drinks specially paired with locally-produced hors d’oeuvres.

— Our first annual Fall Local Roots Oktoberfest Evening Dining event, September 24 at 6:30 p.m. From bratwurst and weisswurst to potato pancakes and apple kraut – all prepared using Michigan ingredients – indulge in these hearty and comforting flavors brought to America by German immigrants. Tickets are $65 per person and including dinner and entertainment by the Deutschmeister Band.
