Plum Market Kitchen

Plum Market Kitchen

Hours of Operation: Open 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Taste American farm-fresh foods at a new signature dining experience in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. In partnership with local entrepreneurs at Plum Market Kitchen, The Henry Ford is activating the stories of family farms and natural foods in bold new ways.

Our shared respect for Michigan farmers and food lovers is a firm foundation for the first Plum Market Kitchen in a cultural destination. Together, we can showcase foods that result from a deep connection between local growers of organic, sustainable and artisanal foods and local businesses that ensure access to good food well prepared.

Join us to nourish your next big idea in the place where sustainability, entrepreneurship and innovation intersect.

No museum admission is necessary to visit Plum Market Kitchen at The Henry Ford, so members, guests and locals alike are welcome. 


Start early at the Zingerman’s coffee counter (opening at 9:30 a.m.) to enjoy a pastry and coffee drink made from carefully selected and roasted beans. Zingerman's story of success in entrepreneurship is rooted in creativity, ingenuity and irrepressible spirit. A true Michigan original gone global.


Choose your lunch from unique chef crafted menu items that you can grab-and-go or sit-and-savor, each inspired by authentic food stories from our research and collections. Soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees feature all-natural meats, sustainable seafood and kid-friendly options.

Taste and take home products from a variety of local vendors, including The Henry Ford’s Hobo Bread, Greenfield Village specialty foods and Michigan favorites from producers like Sanders.

Pull up a chair for an expansive view of the museum or find a table outside on the patio during the warmer seasons.
