Get your shopping carts ready because independently-owned grocery chain, Plum Market, has finally made its Florida debut in none other than Aventura!
The 24,000-square-foot specialty market is reminiscent of Whole Foods, but stocked with more than 100 local labels and focuses on organic and locally-sourced products, along with a fast-casual dining component.
The grocer says it promises “peak of season” produce, grocery and apothecary essentials, sustainably sourced meats and seafood, and chef-crafted prepared dishes made from fresh all natural ingredients. There’s a Wine Department featuring a selection of vinos hand-picked by world-renowned Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon, sushi made on site, and a part dedicated to baked goods and specialty chocolates by Fort Myers-based Norman Love, Kosher favorites, fresh cut floral, and Take Away Catering.
“We’re extremely excited to open our first store here in Aventura and can’t wait to welcome guests from across South Florida,” said Matt Jonna, CEO and Co-Founder of Plum Market. “We look forward to being the premier retailer for all natural, organic, and locally sourced foods, beverages, and lifestyle essentials here in the neighborhood.”
Plum Market was founded in 2006 by brothers Matthew and Marc Jonna, and is based in Detroit, Michigan. Currently, it has more than 25 multiple-format locations throughout Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Texas and Florida with new locations announced in California and Washington, DC.
Adding a local touch to the Aventura market, Miami-based artists Chalk & Brush were commissioned to hand paint a mural inside the store’s dining area with vibrant colors spanning two walls more than 40 feet wide. It’s a “fun and whimsical” focal point for guests to enjoy while they munch on the food they bought at the market.
Here’s a video the artist duo posted on their Instagram of the space:
