Taste Love Cupcakes cupcakes are made from premium ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. With scrumptious flavors such as sweet potato and dark-chocolate salted caramel, it’s no wonder this Royal Oak–based bakery has been such a hit. In Detroit, you can find their half-pint and mini cupcakes at Whole Foods.
Eastern Market has been a destination for fresh, delicious food for Detroiters for almost 125 years. Detroiters can avail themselves of its bounty on Saturdays and Tuesdays, and find art, jewelry, and home goods at the market on Sundays, as well.
What began as a line of city-themed products blossomed into two booming retail stores: City Bird and its neighbor two doors down, Nest. City Bird sells handmade goods, T-shirts, and vintage map notebooks with a hip Detroit flavor, while Nest offers an array of beautiful housewares.
Red House Imports sources coffee from an organic, environmentally conscious co-op in Costa Rica. That’s great for Costa Rica, but it’s also great for Detroit, because the company plans to donate a portion of its profits to local charities and education programs. Red House Imports sells coffee on its website and hopes to make the coffee available at retail locations later this summer.
