Brennan Andes, bassist for The Macpodz, shopping at Knight’s Market with his two-year-old daughter. He and another customer are talking about why they shop there – you can walk to the store, and it’s locally owned so you know where the money is going. Forgot to ask if he’s participating in the May 1 Water Hill Music Fest.

    I, too, was talking with Brennan, my son, and Sarie, my granddaughter, at Knight’s a couple of days ago. Brennan worked there for a number of years… I walk to Knight’s fairly often.
    It’s one of Ann Arbor’s treasures…a good old fashioned corner store. Not many of those left because of “progress”.

    In recent years they have also been featuring many locally-made foods. I need to go pick up some Ann Arbor Tortilla Factory tortillas (not available at local supermarkets).

    Michael, I hope to meet you there someday. I’m a regular – it’s the closest store to our home, and I’ve developed an addiction to their macadamia nut/white chocolate cookies! And you’re right, Vivienne – they sell food from several locally owned vendors, including Mighty Good Coffee and fresh eggs from a farm in Whitmore Lake (can’t recall the name). I hope to see more local food there, especially produce, in the future.

    I’ve seen A2 Tortilla Factory products at the Kroger on Plymouth and Nixon.

    They are not at my Kroger on Stadium, and the Produce Station is not a supermarket. I’ve bought them there, too.

    I’m very happy to announce that Brennan will be performing during the Water Hill Music Fest Sunday May 1st at 4 pm in the 600 block of Summit. [link] More than 150 other neighbors will be performing also.
