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.
Zingerman's has been the standard for great tasting food in Ann Arbor since 1982. In more recent years, they have opened up a creamery where all their cheese and gelato is made. At the front of the creamery there is a cheese shop, where you can buy all sorts of cheese (including goat cheese and cream cheese), a kit for making your own mozzarella at home, books, salami, and best of all the gelato! They have several flavors on hand, freshly made in the same building! Be forewarned, all their food is really tasty, but it isn't for the cheap skate. When you use better, more expensive ingredients, you end up with a quality product that costs more than you would pay at the super market. But don't worry, there are daily and monthly specials you can take advantage of that will keep some of your hard earned money in your pocket.
You can also tour the creamery for a mere five dollars. Click here to read my experience at the tour. Click here if you want to learn more about the creamery itself and what specials they are offering.
