CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Farmers Market, on Gratiot Avenue in Clinton Township, received a fresh look when it was completely remodeled two years ago. But new and returning customers can always expect to find nothing less than the same great value and fresh selections at this “international marketplace” that has been serving the community since 1982.

“It’s been family-operated for a long time,” said Tony Youhan, the market’s manager. “We refurbished the entire place two years ago. Everything is new and easier for customers to navigate. It offers a new look with the same great low prices, and the same great value.”

The meat counter at the Farmers Market has been deemed the area’s best many times over the years, offering a wide variety of meat, poultry, and deli selections. Unlike most modern chain grocery stores, the butchers at Farmers Market specialize in hand cutting, trimming, and wrapping your selections. Special orders and specialty cuts are available.

Farmers Market also offers fresh-baked breads, cookies and sweets, delicatessen favorites, party trays, and easy-to-heat prepared grab-and-go meals.

“We carry things some other places don’t carry,” Tony said. “It’s more unique, with lower prices than the big-box stores and better quality and service, especially for meat and deli.”

The locally sourced fresh vegetables, brand-name dairy products, large assortment of frozen foods, organic items, and international items line the market’s shelves. Farmers Market also offers a wide selection of cheeses, specialty foods, and wines.

“People are surprised at the variety and quality of items we offer, always coming back for the products and great service.” Tony said.

Guests can shop for all of it in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, away from the supermarket lines and higher prices. They can also pick up their lottery tickets and pay bills at the payment center located in the front office.

Farmers Market, “an international marketplace,” is located at 37685 S. Gratiot Ave., in Clinton Township. To reach the store, call (586) 469-2525. For more about the market, including their loyalty program and digital coupons, go to farmersmarketinc.com.
