“Local Roots” is a term we use to reflect our commitment to and collaboration with our local Southeastern Michigan food community. At The Henry Ford we source a large percentage of our food products from family farms and local producers. By creating a demand for local products, we support area farmers, create jobs and stimulate the local economy. This also enables us to offer better tasting, healthier food to all of our guests at The Henry Ford every day. We invite you to learn more about our local growers and producers and shop with them for your own family or business needs!

  • Eat Local Eat Natural Distributors



    At Eat Local Eat Natural we have three objectives: to provide healthier, more nutritious food, reduce the carbon foot-print required to get food to our tables, and to help support our local economy. We work directly with local farmers and producers to distribute Meat & Dairy products to restaurants & specialty markets within the metro-Detroit area. Our farmers raise their animals on pasture, or for poultry cage free, to allow the animals to live as close to their natural habitat as possible. These farmers practice sustainable farming including the use of all natural anti-biotic-free, hormone-free & GMO-free feds. This system of farming produces healthier animals & healthier food than that produced from industrially farming systems. The foods are leaner with higher nutrient levels, and without any of the chemicals found in conventional foods. The added bonus is that we get to work directly with our customers – like the chefs at The Henry Ford and all of our farmers & producers!

  • Chestnut Growers Inc.



    Chestnuts (Castanea sp.) have been used and enjoyed worldwide for several thousand years. In Europe, chestnuts are consumed in a wide variety of dishes, from soups, stews, and stuffing to fancy deserts. Chestnut flour is the secret to many of the fancy French pastries. In other parts of the world, such as China, chestnut is a staple food in their diet. Chestnuts have about half the calories of other nuts and the lowest fat content of all the main edible nuts. This would be 4–5 percent fat in chestnut, as compared to hazelnut's 62 percent and pecan's 71 percent. In composition and food value, the chestnut, is more akin to cereal grains, such as wheat, with its high complex carbohydrate content of about seventy-eight percent. Other nuts have a low carbohydrate content. Since chestnuts are starchy rather than oily, they are readily digestible when roasted or boiled.

  • Mindo Chocolate Makers



    In 2008, a plan to retire and build a small winter home in Ecuador surprisingly turned into a restaurant, hotel and a chocolate making business. Here is Jose's (Joe) story: Six years ago my wife and I went to Ecuador, S.A. I was born in Riobamba, Ecuador and had not returned for 41 years. We liked it and kept going back to visit every year. In 2007 we bought a piece of land and in 2008 began construction or our "little house". Jose is an entrepreneur (serial entrepreneur as described by one of our restaurant customers) and somehow the little house turned into a restaurant and a hostel named El Quetzal de Mindo, in Mindo, Ecuador. Mindo is about 1 1/2 hours drive from Quito, the capital of Ecuador.

  • Sanders



    Sanders Chocolates was first opened by Fred Sanders on June 17, 1875. Eventually, there were more than 57 stores in the Great Lakes Region alone, selling candy, fudge toppings, and baked goods, as well as light lunches and an assortment of desserts at fountain counters, including Ice Cream Sodas, Sundaes and Hot Fudge Cream Puffs. Sanders soon became the leading purveyor of confections in the region and started selling directly to national supermarket chains, as well as to other retailers in the area. We still follow Fred Sander's simple mission to "bring European confectionary style to America by using only the finest ingredients and providing loyal an dutiful customer attention, while selling his confections at a reasonable price." Fred Sanders Chocolates and Toppings are still made following strict formulas by dedicated lifelong candy makers. In 2002 Morley Candy Makers, Inc purchased the Sanders name and recipes to add to its own tradition since 1919. We are proud to make Sanders "Chocolate Worth Sharing." FUN FACTS Accident or Masterpiece?— On a hot summer day in 1875, Sanders concocted what was to be believed the first ice-cream soda! According to legend Fred created the drink when the milk and cream turned sour one busy afternoon. Not wanting to disappoint his customers, Sanders substituted ice cream, and the drink was an immediate success. Henry Ford worked for Sanders— Sanders was one of the first companies in Detroit to use electric motors to run equipment. As a new source of technology the motors would often break down. To remedy this, Fred Sanders hired Henry Ford as a young mechanic who worked at Edison Illuminating Company before he started Ford Motor Company. A True Visionary— In the early 1900s the Sanders family owned one of the first electric automobiles; it provided much amusement for the early skeptics. The “electric “ seemed to have a temperamental streak; it would bring the family downtown in grand style, but once parked in front of the Sanders store it would refuse to run except in reverse.

    Dear Friends, Welcome to our very unique mill, flour store, and bakery. We offer only locally and sustainably grown foods so that each visitor can take part in the amazing bounty that their own community can create Most food in America today comes from a far away place where the conditions surrounding its production involve exploitation, pollution, erosion, and the overuse of fossil fuels. People have become disconnected with what they eat, where their food comes from, and thus, their ability to be connected with who they are. We want to show that this does not have to be. It is not the only way. We provide food that is healthy for your body, healthy for the environment, and healthy for the local economy. We grow grains without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, in soil that has been enriched with green manures and compost, by rotating crops and allowing the soil to rest. Our chickens and turkeys live with freedom of movement and in a setting that is natural to their species. This place is a resource that Michigan consumers want and need.

  • Absopure Water



    Absopure Water Company's humble beginnings date back to 1908, when Absopure Ice was delivered to Detroit area customers on horse-drawn wagons. Originally a brand name of General Necessities Company, Absopure was located in Detroit's Fairview Station at the foot of Lycaste Avenue. Through the 1920s, the company thrived and even offered an Absopure brand of electrical "Frigerators," advertised nationally in the Saturday Evening Post. As a result of the Great Depression, Absopure was purchased by Arthur and Belle Porteus who formed a new business called Absopure Water Company, concentrating on bottled water products. From their plant on Henry Street near Tiger Stadium, they offered home delivery service. Over the next two and a half decades, Absopure continued to thrive. In the mid 1950s, William P. Young purchased Absopure Water Company. Through innovation and an acute business sense, Mr. Young successfully built on Absopure's foundation of quality. Mrs. Young and their son, William C., (Bill) helped the family business by assisting with the day-to-day operations. Bill joined Absopure full time in 1961, and soon became the driving force in the company. Through the years, his children, too, became active in Absopure Water Company. In 1973, the Young Family merged with Chicago-based Beatrice Foods, but remained the managers of the Absopure division. Through Beatrice's resources, significant investments were made in new equipment and facilities modernization. Plus, CAP10 sparkling mineral water was added to the Absopure product lines at that time. In 1982, the Young Family re-purchased Absopure from Beatrice and has continued to build on the company's success into the new millenium.

Our dreams became reality when, in 2004, we formed a company dedicated to providing the very best herbs from the very best gardens: natural, organic herbs from around the world. Chartreuse is the color of a new blade of grass after a spring rain. It is the color of the herbs when they first push up through the soil to be nourished by the sun. It is the color of the heart in the Wheel of Life. This is our journey to wellness - to transform from the harshness of caffeine that tea leaves bring to the beauty and softness of organic tisanes...the evolution of tea.

  • Northwoods Soda



    The company founder, Bill Fosdick, moved his family to the Grand Traverse area in 1988.He did so, with the purpose of starting his own soft drink company and with the idea of making a better quality of life to raise his four children. By the end of the first year Bill had acquired two distributors, a local restaurant chain, and about twenty individual customers. Bill’s wife, Maureen, and their children have all worked in the family business since its inception. When the children were little, their favorite job was “taste testing”, which helped to develop the flavors that Bill uses now. Upon graduating from college with a business degree, Bill’s son, David, joined the business as his father’s partner, helping their business to expand. Quality has always been at the foundation of Northwoods Soda, making it easy to offer a full money back guarantee on every product they manufacture.

  • Zingerman’s



    What is Zingerman’s Anyway? The question seems simple. But the truth is, it’s just not that easy to answer. I can tell you that since we opened our doors in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1982, Zingerman’s Delicatessen has become one of the country’s leading specialty food stores. With an emphasis on education, flavor, tradition and integrity of ingredients, we’ve worked to create a living, breathing, active culinary laboratory where one can experience everything from corned beef and noodle kugel, to hand-picked Kalamata olives, to hand made croissants and pretty much everything in between. And in the process we’ve gained a reputation for sourcing unique, full flavored, traditionally made foodstuffs from all over the world

  • Avalon Bakery



    Regarded as one of the best bakeries in the city, the Avalon Bakery originally opened with the intentions of selling breads only to restaurants. However, word of its delicious country Italian, Greektown olive, raisin pecan, scallion dill and focaccia breads spread quickly and swayed the intentions of the ownership to sell to the general public. Along with the famous breads, Avalon also bakes up scones, brioches, cinnamon rolls and cookies.

  • ASB Distributors



    Our company was founded in 1973 by George Assimacopoulos delivering from the trunk of his 71′ Plymouth Duster! George soon developed a strong clientele in the Downtown Detroit area serving customers with products from a handful of local bakeries. In the mid 90′s, sons Andy and Spiro joined George to form Assimacopoulos Bakery Distributors Inc. The business steadily grew, servicing accounts throughout suburban Detroit and continuing to expand it’s network of supplier bakeries. By 2003 we established our own warehousing facility and began representing regional baking companies in the Detroit market. In 2006, Assimacopoulos Bakery Distributors Inc. merged operations with Mike Sanfilippo of Supreme Sales & Service, to form Assimacopoulos Supreme Baking Co. (ASB). Mike operated his company since the early 80′s and had a strong hold on the hotel and country club segments of the market. Merging the two companies further diversified our customer base, strengthened our delivery capabilities and increased our product offerings. Early in 2010 we established George Anthony Baking Co. (G&A) to further increase our ability to service our customers. The G&A product line is artisan in nature, but performns exceedingly well in commercial foodservice applications. ASB is proud to offer the widest variety of fresh, high quality, delivered baked goods available. We are a family owned company that takes pride in what we do. It is our mission to provide the highest quality products and service available and become a true asset to your business or institution.

  • Flatout Inc.



    Our Story Hello! I’m Stacey Marsh, and I have a passion for FLATOUT flatbread. Our awesome flatbread can be enjoyed by the whole family! Our two daughters who are 9 and 10, their grandparents and everyone in between absolutely love it! And we’re sure you will, too! It all started when my husband, Mike, and I were fresh out of college. Fueled by lots of enthusiasm and dreams of success we decided to open a restaurant and promised ourselves we would take whatever profits we initially made and invest in community organizations. So it happened that in 1990 we began our career in food service with a restaurant. After listening to our customers say time after time, “Why don’t you two bake these wraps and sell them?” we took their advice to heart and decided to go for it. My mother and father have always said, “Never look back and say what if…” And we never did. We dove headfirst into the baking business! We recognized the void in the marketplace for a flatbread that could become a premier carrier for many food applications. After running a successful restaurant we figured it couldn’t be that hard to bake this unique flatbread we envisioned. Well….. learning the baking business was a lot harder than we ever imagined!!

  • The Old Winery Farmers Market



    As Farmington's summer Farmer’s & Artisans Market season began to wind down, our customers kept commenting on how much they enjoyed shopping at the market and didn’t want it to come to an end. They wanted to be able to continue purchasing products from the vendors they got to know from May through November. We started talking to other vendors and found that they still had product to offer and were excited about being able to do so through the winter. Thus, the birth of The Old Winery Farmers Market. With a wide variety of vendors and activities for both adults and children, we try to offer something for everyone. We hope you will get a chance to come visit us! Jean Smith Market Master
