Downtown Detroit is poised to gain a new outpost of Plum Market next month. The Michigan-based grocery chain announced today that it will open its latest dining-focused, small format location at the Ally Detroit Center (500 Woodward Ave.) next to Townhouse Detroit on Wednesday, July 3.

The new, 8,000-square-foot grocery store will feature dine-in seating with a bar serving beer and wine by the glass. Customers can expect options like salad, soup, sandwiches, and a self-service hot and cold bar, a rep for Plum Market confirms to Eater. There will also be Zingerman’s Coffee and baked goods. Visitors can also count on a “condensed collection of grocery and apothecary essentials” including beer and wine to-go and cut flowers.

While downtown does have a handful of small stores including Eatorí Market and City Market, there are still relatively few places to get fresh groceries in the central business district and even fewer options for buying organic. The new store will fill some of those holes for people seeking local, organic, and natural products.

The location represents Plum Market’s first foray into Detroit proper, though the company is also in the process of developing second location inside New Center’s Detroit Pistons’ training facility. A separate small-format Plum Market is expected to land at the Henry Ford in Dearborn this winter. Stay tuned for more updates on the Ally Detroit location.
