In the interest of promoting local partnership, and in bringing you a healthy vegan option, Western Market is now carrying Om Cafe's Yellow Split Pea Soup as one of our Daily Soups. Get Yellow Split Pea any day of the week during this trial basis, and be sure to let us know what you think!
Western Market Family
We love our Western Market family. Not just the Selvaggios, who have run the store since 1983, but all of the loyal employees and customers who make our store an interesting, yet very comfortable, place to work and shop.
Below are blogs about the great people we know...
Be the best Western Market Customer in 2012
We love all our customers. But the best ones are those that take advantage of all the deals and services we have to offer.
Here is a list of all the tools that Western Market has available to you, to help you save money and learn more about the foods we have for you.
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!
Western Market is now becoming even more interactive, with a test run of QR codes placed through the store. QR, or "Quick Response" codes allow those with Android phones to scan the square-shaped codes and be directed to a web page with more information. Most times the codes found in our store will link to blogs about the products we are featuring, and sometimes we may link to our Facebook Page or our You Tube page.
