For more than 50 years, shoppers have ambled through the aisles of La Rosa Market and stocked carts with fresh-baked breads, deli products, and the essentials. Craft grandiose hoagies or time-sensitive sculptures with a diverse selection of Boar's Head deli meats and cheeses ($6–$9/lb.), or fuel barbecues with protein-packed bites of AngusPride Choice beef ($6+/lb.). Dough designers knead, toss, and roll floured mounds into freshly baked tongue warmers, including breads, pies, cakes and pastries ($2–$15). After culling enough rations to restock pantry shelves and vacant bowling-trophy cases, cart cabbies can browse a vibrant floral section that includes roses by the dozen ($9.99) and mixed bouquets ($7.99). Shoppers can also corral bundles of firewood ($4.99) to illuminate backyard gatherings.

The traditional Dream Dinners experience has customers visit one of the convenient kitchen's prep sessions, where patrons assemble meals out of fresh ingredients to take home and cook when they please. With this Groupon, however, you can pick up six already assembled meals from the Dream Dinners kitchen (three-serving-meal prices average between $11 and $12, with the $25 preparation fee included in the deal), thereby cutting out the work that's already cutting out the work. Select a pickup time that has been set aside for Groupon users, and then choose six meals from the Rochester Hills location's menu sampler, which changes monthly. On the specified date and time, you may retrieve your Dream Dinners meals and escort them home in an insulated limousine filled with ice, or, if chilled limos are unavailable, in a cooler. Once home, Dream Dinners' easy-to-follow instructions will guide you through the stress-free cooking.
Kutchey Family Market traces its origins back to the 1830s, when three brothers of the Kutchey family came to Warren from their native Belgium and established a farm. Like a treasured heirloom or a dominant gene for cowlicks, the farm was passed down from generation to generation. Today, David Kutchey carries on the family tradition at the market's stalls. Those who visit the bustling neighborhood farmers' market can take home a cornucopia of fresh, Michigan-grown produce and products, ranging from cabbages, strawberries, onions, and sweet corn to pickles and Amish jellies and jams. The bounty of the market's inventory changes from season to season, with greenhouses full of baby plants for aspiring green thumbs available in the spring and rows of evergreen Christmas trees sold in December.
Ken Snook wasn't like the other boys in school. His classmates dreamed of becoming basketball players, astronauts, and rock stars, but Ken wanted to be a butcher. The teenager hadn't known it when he took a part-time job at a small butcher shop in Detroit, but he soon fell in love with the trade, developing a knack with the knife and a keen eye for quality cuts. After working as a butcher for years, Ken purchased Colasanti's Market and set up his own butcher shop amid its shelves of groceries and rows of produce.
Today, Ken continues to slice up fresh cuts of USDA Choice black Angus beef, housemade sausages, and fresh seafood. He can even provide an entire hog for a pig roast, complete with electric rotisserie, charcoal, and grill. Beyond his butcher shop lies an entire market of fine foods and groceries where friendly staff members bustle, directing customers to gluten-free goods and refereeing shopping-cart races down the dairy aisle. A deli staff whips up fresh sandwiches, salads, and party trays, and customers sip on complimentary coffee and peruse selections of imported wine and beer. Above their heads, a cheerful model train loops around tracks suspended from the ceiling. Outside, the sun beams on pots of colorful flowers, and ducks amble around a duck pond. The lively market even hosts special weekend events, from wine tastings to summer parties.
