If you have even the slightest sweet tooth, Prince Valley Market will be your new favorite place to shop. The Southwest Detroit grocery store operates an in-house bakery with some of the most wonderful pastries you’ll ever taste.

The sign out front looks like a coat of arms, as if to say, yes, you have found the Knights of Dessert; enter our palace of sweets.

Inside, you’ll find a spacious, bright super market with an easy-to-navigate layout. And oh, the desserts! Rows and rows of freshly baked treats are displayed in big glass cases, making it impossible to choose just one. Among the sweet choices are churros, cupcakes, cannoli, donuts – dusted with cinnamon sugar or glazed with frosting – jelly rolls, empanadas filled with fruit, flaky danish pastries, cookies, little cream-filled cakes and more.

It’s not just sweets that PV makes in-house. Their tortillas are made right inside the store, along with fresh tortilla chips, salsas and guacamole. PV also bakes fresh bolillos baguettes and other breads on site.

An impressive selection of hot sauces and salsas will make you wonder what you’ve been missing out on all these years. Why doesn’t every grocery store have these? Also among the spacious, well-lit aisles you’ll find everything you need for your weekly grocery haul. Heaps of unblemished fruits and veggies. Fresh meats and seafood. Pantry items galore. This is not a little market where you can pick up a few novelty items to augment your ethnic recipe repertory; PV is a full on supermarket.

One of the things we love about Southwest Detroit grocery stores is that so many of them seem to also come with a built in taqueria. PV doesn’t disappoint. All the way in the back of the store (just follow your nose to the scent of grilled meats and salsas) is a little carry-out counter where you can load up on tacos and burritos stuffed with grilled chicken, slow-cooked barbacoa or other toppings. So that rule about never grocery shopping while you’re hungry? It doesn’t apply here. Bring your appetite.

Prince Valley opened in 1999, founded by Hani Gappy and his family. Hani previously three other grocery stores around the city, with the first one opening in 1972. The PV staff is as friendly as can be, and make shopping here delightful.
