    We admit it. We’ve used the term “food desert” in describing Detroit. Though we’ve learned over the years that our city actually does have some really nice grocery stores, we sometimes wish we had access to the little corner markets - neighborhood groceries - you’ll find in other major cities. When we first spotted Peaches and Greens, [...]

    We were skeptical about drinking a beverage made mostly of ground up corn. But after we first tried this unusual concoction at La Rosita, we’ve developed an insatiable craving for warm corn drink. (More on that in a minute.) La Rosita is a taqueria and super market tucked onto the corner of McGraw and Springwells in Southwest Detroit. This hid [...]

    The Corktown Farmers Market has more than a dozen vendors offering local produce and prepared foods. And when we say local, we mean local. You’ll find only Detroit-based vendors at the market. The market is tucked into a grassy little garden next to the Detroit Institute of Bagels. It’s open only on Thursdays from 4-7 p.m. Is it as big as [...]

    Who says you can’t find fresh produce downtown? On more than one occasion, we’ve found ourselves downtown with a craving for fresh fruit but unable to find any at the corner store. We resorted to eating peanut butter and jelly on graham crackers instead. But you don’t have to settle for grape jelly when you really want fresh grapes. Hea [...]

    It’s almost intimidating the first time you visit this kingdom of meats. The colorfully painted, warehouse style Gratiot Central Market looks big from the outside, but it’s hard to tell how large this place really is until you step inside. Once you do, you’ll find yourself in the middle of a massive grocery store specializing in gorgeous meat [...]

    Before you even take your first bite of chocolate, the packaging at Bon Bon Bon lets you know this experience is going to be unique. Long, rectangular slabs of corrugated cardboard are pressed together with packaging tape, stickers, and sturdy Bon Bon Bon rubber bands. The boxes are stamped with a “made in Hamtramck” message and a warning la [...]

    The Collective Detroit is not exactly off the beaten path, perched right on Jefferson Ave. But it’s easy to pass by. It just looks like a house. This is definitely a place you should not pass up, though. There’s a sweet little Sunday brunch spot hiding inside. The Collective has been flying under the radar since 2012, when business partners [...]

    If you’ve spent any time strolling around Bricktown, you may have spotted the curious establishment hidden in plain view on Jefferson Ave. Through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the first floor of a mid-rise, red brick building, you can spot stacks of vintage-looking furniture, decorations and a seemingly random collections of odd trinkets. W [...]
