Avalon Breads provides new options

Woodward Corner Market in Royal Oak and Rivertown Market in Detroit are offering a new dining option for their customers with the recent opening of new tenant – Avalon International Breads. The Detroit-based artisanal bread company joins the two stores, which are operated by Meijer, offering coffee, fresh sandwiches and a variety of grab-and-go food items. “We are very pleased to continue our focus on providing fresh and local offerings to customers at Rivertown and Woodward Corner,” said Justin Stricklen, vice president of market format stores for Meijer. “Avalon is truly a Detroit success story, and being able to provide our customers with such a fresh and delicious dining option is truly a win.” Avalon has been a vendor for both markets since they opened, selling artisan breads and packaged cookies – all featuring 100 percent organic flour. The company began in June 1997 in a converted storefront in Detroit’s Cass Corridor. Since then, Avalon has grown to three cafes in southeastern Michigan, serving a variety of fresh foods, as well as a burgeoning catering business and wholesale operation. In addition to robust coffee bar offerings, Avalon will feature freshly baked breads, sweets, vegan treats and expanded breakfast and lunch offerings and catering options. Woodward Corner Market, 30955 Woodward Avenue, Royal Oak
