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).
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.

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.
