I’m from Detroit, so I know how difficult it is to find good fresh groceries within the city limits. Of course there’s the Eastern Market, which I love. The problem is it’s pretty far to travel, especially if you just need a few things.
More and more, little produce places are popping up throughout the city and I’m loving it.
The most recent store I’ve seen crop up (pun intended) is Peaches and Greens. Thanks to Model D for the great picture of their building. I love it especially because they’re planning to stock the shelves with produce grown in their own local garden.
They are also inviting others who have gardens in the city to sell their fare there.
The other really nice thing is that Peaches and Greens will offer a
produce truck so those who don’t necessarily live nearby will still
have access to lots of good-for-you options.
I couldn’t be more
excited to see Peaches and Greens and other fresh food stores in
Detroit. Maybe they’ll start to combat all the fast food joints planted
every 20 feet.
