  • Health-food-store Health Store

The oldest health food store in the metro Detroit area. The space is small but stocks a range or products including supplements, organic produce, grocery items, and books. Many vegetarian and vegan items. Will place special orders. Find some local specialty items in the coolers that are hard to find such as Greta's Ginger Juice. Free parking spots in the alley behind the store. Open Mon-Sat 9:30am-8:00pm, Sun 11:00am-5:00pm.

Helpful staff. Best place for supplements.

A family owned local business that has been around for 40 years. My mother shopped here in the 70s, and knew all of the employees by name. The original owner is gone, but Nutri Foods still has that family business feel. They are among the best source of supplements and homeopathic remedies in the area. They carry the grocery basics, including frozen foods, breads, vegan cheeses and meat substitutes. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please ask... they will order it for you. Unfortunately the large parking lot that was behind the building is now a parking structure, but the store does have 6 free reserved parking spaces available at the rear entrance of the store... enter from the alley off of W. Second Street.

Pros: Lots of supplements including hard to find items , Knowledgeable and helpful staff , Longtime neighborhood business

Cons: Small store, so grocery variety is not expansive , Limited parking.

Its OK

I believe the current hours are 9am-8pm M-Sat and 11am-5pm on Sunday. There are 5-6 free parking spots in the back, right up against the back of the building, and you have to turn into the alley off of 2nd street to get to them. I'd say over half of the store is filled with supplements, and only 3 small freezers with frozen goods plus a couple coolers for other perishable groceries in addition to a few aisles of dry goods.

About the only reason I stop in here is for the frozen falafels (the brand name escapes me, but they really are the best you can buy and few places carry them) plus the greta's ginger juice (call to see if it is in stock first, though) and vegan donuts that I can't find anywhere else nearby since Good Food closed.

They have some kind of frequent customer card, where a purchase over $50 gets you a punch, and when you've reached a certain number of punches, you get a gift certificate (similar to the program at the Natural Food Patch in Ferndale.)

Not sure if I would ever do all of my grocery shopping here, but you can find most vegan items you need for baking. Check the snack items carefully before buying (bags of chips, snack bars, etc.) because they tend to sit on the shelf a long time to the point where some items are past their "best by" date and are stale.
