The meats and groceries at Pure Pastures come from small family farms in Michigan. Their suppliers raise their animals with sustainable and free-range practices similar to those before WWII, meaning the chickens eat vegetarian feed, the cows, bison, and lamb munch on grass out on the open range, pigs live outdoors, and none of them worry about the nuclear threat. Also none of the animals ever consume hormones or antibiotics, relying on a stress-free environment instead to ensure their health. In this way, the farmers produce organic meats with lower fat content and higher concentrations of healthy nutrients.
When perusing these meats in Pure Pastures' cases, patrons can find the right cut for most recipes. They might pick up grass-fed roasts, soup bones, sirloin steaks, or baby-back ribs, and staffers can track down special cuts should customers need something not in stock. For pre- or post-dinner snacking, Pure Pastures also carries organic cheeses.
Dollar Castle's shelves brim with everyday necessities such as groceries and home goods stocked alongside toys, party supplies, gift packaging, and seasonal decorations. Shoppers can prepare for the holiday season with gift boxes and Christmas decorations primed to turn any home into an exact replica of Santa's igloo. Party supplies such as dinnerware, table covers, and paper products help to host extra guests, while storage containers are ready to stash away leftovers or the especially good pie that never got served. While perusing the aisles, customers can also stock up on cozy gloves, mittens, and scarves. Much like the exchange rate for a Sacagawea coin, most items in the store go for $1.
"Caf? Con Leche," MLive's David Muller muses, "is the type of coffee shop where you can sit down, meet people and stay for a few minutes or hours." This is most likely thanks to its
spacious, sun-soaked interior and the fact that its owner hails from Barcelona, where leisurely coffee shops abound. This Spanish influence is deliciously evident in the drinks, which boast Latin recipes and postmarks from Colombia stamped on each bean. The gathering spot also offers up bocadillos, or sandwiches on hearty baguettes, to accompany freshly brewed coffee.
You can check off a lot of groceries and errands from your list at Prince Valley Market. The market specializes in Mexican- and Latin-American groceries—there’s an in-house tortilleria that turns out handmade tortillas, for example. There’s a substantial produce section with locally raised veggies, as well as a bakery where you can order custom-made birthday cakes. Beyond standard grocery shopping, though, you can also take advantage of in-store convenience services such as cashing a check, buying stamps, sending packages, or converting loose coins into bills and coupons for shoulder massages.
The market is a one-stop shop for parties: colorful, custom-made cakes and treat-stuffed piñatas are available. You can even stop by the Baja Mexican Grill for a tasty lunch of carnitas, enchiladas, and rotisserie chicken.
