Best Independent Grocery Store, Oakland 

Western Market

447 W. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale; 248-546-7288; westernmarket.net

Since 1983, Western Market has provided its shoppers with fresh and healthy meats, produce, deli items and grocery store staples. Western's emphasis is on local foods, featuring a wide array of products from Michigan companies and farms. And if local isn't an option, the family-owned store does its best to deal only with other independent, family-owned businesses. Western also boasts a sizable selection of fine wines and craft beers, extensive organic options, generous weekly specials and, best of all, a passion for real, delicious food.
