Edson Farms’ Sugar Cookies

By Anna Faller | Dec. 24, 2022

Established in the late ’70s, Edson Farms Natural Foods has long been our go-to for local produce and better-for-you deli staples. We just can’t help ourselves, though, when it comes to their house-baked sugar cookies. Inspired by owner Jessica Edson’s own family’s dietary needs, these holiday treats are gluten-free and call for only whole ingredients like grass-fed butter, raw vanilla, and eggs from Kingsley’s River Valley Farms. Each six- or 12-count cookie box contains an array of festive cut-outs, from stockings to stars to gingerbread men, and is ready to take home and decorate. Top them off with a schmear of organic icing or a shake of naturally-colored sprinkles—complete with tiny Christmas sweaters—and let the sugar rush commence! Grab a box (for $6 and $12 each, respectively) at Edson Farms Natural Foods, 835 S. Garfield Ave, Traverse City. (231) 941-5221,
