Koepsel’s Farm Market

      So, things have quieted down a bit here at the Lull-Abi Inn, so I have some time to get back to blogging about some interesting places in Door County.  While I am typing this I am also munching on a jar of pickled asparagus from Koepsel’s Farm Market.  Wow!  What a find!  I’ve never been to Koepsel’s because, like me, they are seasonal.  But today I had an errand up there (Hwy 57 north end of Bailey’s Harbor…way north end) and I stopped in to visit my friend Corrina, who is part of the family that owns this market. I was stunned at the variety!  This is no minor undertaking here!  A great beer selection, bakery, cheese counter, preserves, salsas, and on and on.  I left with a jar of pickled asparagus, clover honey, cherry honey mustard dip (thinkin’ that might be good for pork chops) and a bag of pretzels. Be sure to visit Koepsel’s on your next trip!   And…you can shop...

The Beer is Here!

At the Lull-Abi, it can sometimes get a little hectic, which sometimes calls for a beer.  Well, rather than being selfish, I decided to get a beer license a couple of years ago (interesting fact, Egg Harbor has more alcohol outlets per capita than any other community in the state of Wisconsin!) so I can sell beer to my guests. My buddy, Matt Bley from Kay Distributing, has helped me select some interesting Great Lakes area beers.  We now have: New Glarus Spotted Cow New Glarus Moon Man IPA New Glarus Two Women Lakefront Wavehopper Lakefront Boatilla Bells Amber Ale Lake Louis Scottish Ale And Coors Light for those who just want to wet their whistle! I have it warm and cold, and if you let me know when you make the reservation I’ll be sure to have a six-pack in your room fridge for only $10. Be sure to stop in and check it...

MacReady Artisan Bread…new to Egg Harbor

My buddy Mark stopped in today with a package under his arm and a grin on his face.  “Get a bread knife”, he told me.  So I did, and he pulls this beautiful loaf of fresh baked bread out of this bag, and cuts off a big chunk to try.  Turns out we have a new artisan bread bakery in the Village called  MacReady Artisan Bread, located in the former Cupola House Cafe building, right across the street from Parador restaurant, behind the Cupola House. Good stuff!  So, I headed down to check it out.  The bakery is owned by Michael and Jenny MacReady, they just opened today.  It’s a good selection of artisan breads, artisan cheeses, and ice cream.  Soon they will be making sandwiches, too. Stop in and check it out.  Here is their website ....

Main Street Market

My pre-Lull-Abi Inn career was in the consumer products industry, so, having been in thousands of grocery stores in my life I know a good store when I see one, and this is a great store! Egg Harbor would be a much less pleasant place to live if the Main Street Market wasn’t there. The store is stocked with everything you need, and lots of products you will want to try. It has a great selection of specialty foods throughout the store which make it easy for the cook in the family (me!) to try new things. There is a full service meat case, great fresh produce, and a bakery. Oh, and the deli actually makes many of its own items rather than just dumping them out of a container that came in on a truck! Wow, a deli that actually cooks! The wine selection is magnificent and the beer selection is also top notch. There is a liquor section, and a good selection of Health and Beauty items. Be sure to stop in and check out the Main Street Market to pick up a treat for sitting on your deck at the Lull-Abi watching the sunset. A little wine, some cheese and crackers, maybe some hummus and a fresh baguette? Who knows, but if you like a great full service market this is the...

Maxwell’s House-Egg Harbor

I don’t like to shop. Maybe I should say “I like guy shopping” and can spend plenty of time in a Fleet Farm or Best Buy, but this whole “cutesey shoppy” thing just ain’t for me. But then, there’s Maxwell’s House. A friend of mine, Karen, and her husband, Sean, own the shop, most days you will find Karen working there all day. The shop is great! Full of colors and smells and textures, it’s just fun to explore. They are a home décor type of shop, with rugs, accents, lighting, signs, magnets, books and “stuff”. It kinda reminds me of some of the shops on South Street in Philadelphia, or some of the shops in the Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis back in the 70’s. Anyway, it’s a fun stop, Karen is great, and you might find something you absolutely need…even if you’re a...
