This is a must stop if you go to downtown TC. They have cherry everything, and the tasting is great. We did some wine tasting, and for the little ones (or non-alcohol drinkers) they let you do tastings of their soda pop. The woman who served us samples was super helpful.

So many unusual uses of the cherry and free samples. I think we wound up buying one of everything. Stopped in frankenmuth for something we forgot!

Go hungry there are lots of samples to try! Everything is delicious and you can't help leave without a bag full of goodies. They have shipping boxes available too if you want to share with out of town friends. There is a decent size play area that keeps little kids entertained. They automatically charge a 1% "fee" on your order... More

Cherry Republic has the best items to buy. From the salsa, to candy to wine. We always stop in to try something new and of course bring some home to the family. There is a cute little tree house along with a cherry ball pit for the kids to play.

Lots of free tasters and they were 99% good. Everything from salsa to soda. Try the habanero cherry salsa it is not hot but the blend is delicious. Small snack bar in the back of the store.

The chocolate covered cherries are the best!!! However, the prices are wayyyy too high! Everything that I have tasted there is outstanding, but I don't feel the price justifies the purchase.

And I mean everywhere! All around the store, you can sample salsas, cherryaki sauce, barbecue sauces, cherry mustard, and so on and so forth. Didn't planned on spending anything there, but left with quite a big bag. They even gift wrap for free!

My husband and I get to Traverse City two or three times each year and always make plans to visit Cherry Republic! We like the fact that you can taste test everything before you buy. We have purchased cherries in bulk from the grocery store and they do not begin to compare with Cherry Republic! Normally, we buy several gifts... More

Although I never knew it before arriving, Traverse City, prides itself as the Cherry Capital of the USA. The Cherry Republic is the mecca for all things made with cherries, from baked products, candies, wine and sodas, all types of sauces, etc. The cherry pies and cherry ice cream are the best. Definitely at a must stop on Front St.

We stopped at a couple of these stores while in Michigan and must say that the salsa's were excellent. The stores offer plenty of samples for most of their product. Well worth the stop and also the purchase.
