State Street Marketplace has created a community and hangout space for all. Downtown Traverse City’s unique marketplace offers a collection of local artisan business owners who welcome visitors of all ages. You’ll find everything from shopping to eating, drinking, gaming and more… ALL IN ONE PLACE!
Which once housed the Horse Stables for the Traverse City Police Department in the early 1900's has been renovated for modern conveniences, while still preserving the building's unique history. Located only a block off of Front Street, guests can enjoy a wide variety of local food offerings, local gifts, activities, games, live music, and hand crafted beer all in a fun, friendly environment.

The open floor space holds several tenants, each with their own specialty:


Lakes and Grapes

New to The Marketplace this Fall, Lakes and Grapes is an apparel company deeply rooted in the adventures and lifestyle of the Great Lakes wine region. Appropriately coined as "Rosé by the Bay" wear, Lakes and Grapes represents a collection of clothing that can comfortably brave any casual atmosphere: from the lake to the winery. Whether you’re heading out to enjoy the local wine scene, going for a hike at the dunes or simply wanting to take home a keepsake from your trip, you’ll want to shop this lake and wine inspired brand!

Crêpes & Co.

This crêperie is bringing together the area’s tastiest goodies to provide a French culinary experience with a local twist. Crêpes and Co is owned and run by French chef, Vanessa Grasset, who studied both in France and here locally in northern Michigan at Great Lakes Culinary Institute. From sweet to savory styled crêpes, there’s a crêpe for everyone. Whether you’re stopping in for breakfast to pair with the neighboring coffee tenant or to wanting to enjoy alongside a craft beer, Crêpes & Co has you covered!


Planetary Coffee

During your trip to the Marketplace, you’ll have to orbit over to Planetary Coffee for your caffeine fix. Their playfulness, openness, and dedication to stellar service, while staying dedicated to serving some of the finest coffee around is what makes this coffee lounge a local favorite. Whether you take your coffee black or with all the works, Planetary Coffee offers an array of drinks that are bound to satisfy your specific coffee taste. Not to mention their espresso, cappuccino and chai lattes are among some of the menu items not to be missed.

Monkey Fist Brewing Co.

Their mantra “we take our beer more seriously than ourselves” holds true to the fact that they are serious about customer service and the quality of their beers. With fantastic, punny names to their drinks, you’ll have a tough time deciding which to pick. So pull up a bar stool and taste through a flight. Don’t forget to try the Weizen Shine and Wookalar Stout.
