Grocery Pop-up in Empire

Local Restaurant Offers Groceries

Frank Lerchen, owner of the Empire Village Inn and Joe’s Friendly Tavern, opened a pop-up grocery store to address the need for local food. The market sells fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, pantry essentials, paper goods and cleaning supplies. Beer and wine are also available for sale. With no grocery store in town this Pop-Up has been perfect for getting the essentials without driving too far! They also offer gluten free and vegan products! The nearest grocery store after the Pop-Up is Andersons Market in Glen Arbor!

The pop-up store is located at the Empire Village Inn on M-22. It will be open daily, holding the same hours as the Village Inn. Those hours are Tuesday through Sunday 3-9pm. The Village Inn is only open for takeout food and pizza. Their menu can be accessed online.

Call the Village Inn at 231.326.5101 to place your order for take out!
