St. Leo’s Catholic Church in Detroit (4860 15th Street) gives year-round services to low income and homeless individuals, which requires a lot of time, love, care and donations. There is a Soup Kitchen that operates 6 days a week and helps between 120-300 people each day. There is also a free medical clinic, a free dental clinic, a free library, free legal services, a clothes closet and more. All of this is organized through volunteers under the leadership of Joe Micallef, who has worked with the church and the Malta Medical Mission for the past 30 years.
The 2011 Ferndale Ice Fest was a grand success! Western Market had two sculptures this year, with our unique McClure’s pickle jar being carved live! Check out this video of all the fun!
Streenstra’s St. Claus Cookies are a Michigan original and a holiday staple for many local families. These delicious cookies are often imitated as “windmill cookies,” but those over-processed copycats are nothing compared to the 1900’s original recipe.
Western Market has always carried a strong variety of Michigan-made honey, with products from Sleeping Bear Farms, Groeb Farms, Billy Bee and Goodrich. But this year we’ve brought on two additional products that we think customers will love: Stash Original Honey Sticks and Real Pure Michigan Honey Combs from Goodrich.
