Traders Point Creamery Makes Friday Nights on the Farm Special
Writer / Neil Lucas
If you’re looking for an outdoor alternative to the normal Friday night summer activities, check out Traders Point Creamery’s Dinner on the Deck and the Green Market. For years, this Friday evening event has been a favorite of northsiders who enjoy fresh air and great food in a peaceful, bucolic setting surrounded by a working organic dairy. However, this year the event is getting an upgrade to make the evening even more pleasurable.
Every Friday evening this summer, through August, the Traders Point Creamery will have live music playing in front of their beautiful organic garden, the source of many of the herbs and vegetables used to prepare the freshest food around. Before having dinner on the deck, you can do a little grocery shopping at the farmer’s market stands lining the deck area.
The garden lawn is filled with the bright oranges, greens and blues of repurposed wooden pallet furniture with big umbrellas. Guests can lounge on the cushions to enjoy the music with some wine, beer or sangria from the outdoor bar. The bar, too, has gotten a facelift with turquoise wooden pallets to fit the celebratory summer mood. The colors are bright and festive and the food is, as always, fresh, organic and delicious.
There is a set menu that changes weekly, according to the availability of farm-fresh ingredients. Dinner prices will also vary a bit through the summer, typically $20-$22 and $10 for kids. Traders Point Creamery’s Friday evenings also offer pony rides for the kids. Don’t forget that Traders Point Creamery every day offers some of the freshest and most delicious ice cream and frozen yogurt at their outside dairy bar.
