A bulk food in your neighborhood is a gem. Great way to save money and get exactly what you want or try something new. Check out where you can find bulk stores in Michigan.
I love buying food in bulk.
Having the option of how much or how little to buy is a great perk.
Usually when you shop buy the pound you end up saving a lot of money too.
Bulk stores may not be easy to find. Often they are hidden gems, tucked away in some unremarkable strip mall. Maybe next to a Chinese take out place that seem to also pop up at every unremarkable strip mall.
These bulk stores are great for buying fresher spices than the grocery store. I get my dried herbs and baking supplies. And of course you have to wander down the candy aisle to get a little something for the sweet tooth.
To all my fellow Michiganders, this post is for you. Let me help you find a bulk food store in your area, where you can save some dough and fill those gaps in your pantry.
Where are Bulk Food Stores in Michigan?
I live in the Ann Arbor area. My go-to store is By the Pound. You can read more about it if you like. It's a good one.
I am a big fan of bulk food stores, but they aren't always easy to find. I have never found a good listing of them, so I decided to create one myself for my state. These stores are where I love to buy my spices and dried herbs, along with baking supplies.
Now let me list some other bulk food stores you'll want to check out. A lot of these are in more rural areas because they are Amish run. There are some in the suburbs in places like Dearborn, Clinton Township, Taylor, etc.

If you know of any other stores in the state, leave a comment below.
If you have a Whole Foods Market near you, they have a wonderful bulk section. Some of their prices have gone down since Amazon took over. See the new price guide. Also Fresh Thyme stores have a decent dedicated bulk section.
You can get a few bulk items at Busch's stores and I have seen them at Kroger stores but mine recently lost their small bulk section. Meijer use to offer bulk items but get rid of that years ago, much to my dismay.
