A celebration of Easter in Detroit wouldn't be complete without the Easter Bunny, who showed up at Honey Bee Market, voted Best Indie Grocery Store by Metro Times readers. The Easter Bunny passed out balloons to children and posed for pictures with children and adults throughout the store.
One of the owners, Ken Koehler, posed for a photo with the Easter Bunny by the guacamole bar as Tammy Alfaro-Koehler used her mobile device's camera. "He's not gonna like that one because of the buggy," said Alfaro-Koehler as Koehler moved a shopping cart out of the way for Alfaro-Koehler to take another photo. As usual for a Sunday, the store was crowded with customers.
"It's my favorite store, I come here every weekend," said Ramiro Carvajal, who took his son, Eric, 6, with him. Carvajal bought aluminum foil, steak and some condiments. Today, because of Easter, the store closed early at 3:00 p.m., but is normally open until 6:00 p.m. on Sundays, and until 8:00 p.m. all other days, according to the store's website.
