This is part of a series of posts on grocery stores that I have been to and would recommend to those that live in the area to check them out.
On a recent trip from Saline to Port Huron, I made a pitstop at the Holiday Market in Royal Oak. Holiday Market has been around since 1954. The store is divided up into different section or as they call them shoppes. The shoppes are produce, grocery, bakery, wine, deli, cheese, seafood, meat, and du jour. When you first enter the store you are in the produce section. This section contains a good selection of fruits and vegetables. One of my favorite sections was the cheese section. The cheese is in a wrap around fridge. Each cheese is well labeled and has a sign explaining what the cheese is and what you can do with it. I found it very informative. I picked up some brick cheese, which they said would be great for pizza. Their grocery section contains all your dried goods featuring Spartan brand products. I also found Frostie brand soda pop there, that I have only seen at Cost Plus World Market, so I picked up some bottles. You can find their meat department as the very back end of the store. I didn't buy any meat, but it looked like that had decent prices.
Holiday Market has an award winning catering service. They also cater to people who are looking to learn to cook with their Mirepoix cooking school.
The store is located on Main St. in Royal Oak, not too far from I-696, so if you are passing by on the highway, it isn't too much trouble to stop in, which I plan to do whenever I am passing by.
