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.
Stocked with all the stuff kids—and the young at heart—love, Z's Penny Candy is packed with candies, fresh popcorn, and pinatas. Inside the brightly-painted store, customers can explore the aisles to find boxes and bars of classics, from Snickers and Pez to bags of Big League Chew and jars stuffed with something your brother will just steal anyway. The staff also scoops up ice cream and keeps a slushie machine churning out cool treats for respite from the heat in the summertime.
Schott's Market's epicurean specialists equip its aisles with a fresh array of USDA Choice meat selections, produce and baked goods and carefully process personal hunting yields to each customer's specifications. In addition to processing and packaging venison to keep it as fresh as an unopened DJ Jazzy Jeff album, the meat market offers freshly ground beef ($2.99/lb.) and more than 20 varieties of store-made sausages ($2.59–$2.99/lb.). Whole chickens ($1.49/lb.) and new york strip steak ($3.99/lb.) also adorn the deli each day, along with chicken and beef kebabs ($5.99/lb.) and other delicacies that eliminate the need for preparing food at home and getting lost in the enthralling plots of cookbooks. Hunters can arrange to have their deer deboned, cut, wrapped in freezer-safe paper, and frozen by the fillet aficionados, who can also transform buckshot bounty into deer sausage ($3/lb.), breakfast links ($5/lb.), jerky ($15/lb.), or smoked salami ($15/stick).
