Our Story

Ken’s fruit market was established on August 13th, 2010 with our Alger Heights location. We opened with fewer than 20 employees and a families’ little dream. With the success of our first store, and people begging for more small, local, sincere businesses in the area, we decided to open our second location at 3500 Plainfield Ave NE in April of 2010. We now have over 75 employees at our two locations. We have recently acquired another store in Ionia, MI named Ken’s Farm Market. This location was previously McCord’s Farm Market—where Ken got his start in the grocery business.

Over the years we have grown our brand to a name that our neighbors recognize and love. That is because there is one thing that we have always strived to bring to our customers—the best quality product at the best prices, with great service and local flavor. Here at Ken’s, you will find the freshest produce with local, in season selections available year round. You will find the best cuts of meat prepared daily by our in-house butchers; not to mention the selection of groceries (including our own private label products), candy, garden center products and beer & wine*. You might even see a familiar face or two from the neighborhood when you stop in. We look forward to evolving even more in the coming years, while still providing the goods and services you have come to expect from us.
