Named after County Kerry, Ireland, Kerrytown was part of the original village of Ann Arbor. Converted into markets and shops in the late 1960s, these historically old buildings have been meticulously maintained to preserve the timeless appeal of their brick and exposed beams. Today, the neighborhood is home to several other Ann Arbor attractions, including Zingerman’s Deli, the Ann Arbor Farmers’ Market, Kerrytown Concert House, Braun Court, the Ann Arbor Artisans’ Market, antique stores and more.
