ZZ’S PRODUCE, INC. is a family run business established as a corporation on September 2002 by the ZZ family. The main objective of the organization is to cater to customers who reside in Washtenaw County and surrounding areas and are looking for traditional foods from Latin American, Middle Eastern, Asian, and African countries. The idea of founding ZZ’S PRODUCE, INC. was born when its founder, Zz, realized that Washtenaw County did not have a place where international residents could find a variety of foods and products to prepare traditional dishes from their home countries. Consequently, the ZZ family established ZZ’S PRODUCE, INC. to offer a large selection of imported fruits and vegetables, odd spices, teas, pastas, bakery and confectionery products, and all kinds of international traditional foods. ZZ’S PRODUCE, INC. is located in the city of Ann Arbor on 4092 Packard Road and it operates from 9 am to 8 pm from Mondays to Saturdays and from 9 am to 6 pm on Sundays.
Bingo. Z Z's Produce had 'em. Never knew that place existed. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but what a treasure trove inside. Seems they have more Thai ingredients than other shops in A2. Thanks for the tip!
If you're the type of shopper who gets grossed out by fruit flies (mostly only in the summer as Brad mentioned) or produce that isn't looking it's 100% best, you may want to avoid ZZ's. Don't come in here expecting Plum Market-worthy displays of produce. I like to come to ZZ's because I hate Plum Market and LOVE paying next to nothing for pounds of carrots, apples and oranges at this place. I enjoy using my fruit and vegetable juicer so cheap, most of the time flawed produce is perfect for me. Sometimes the owner kids me about when I'm going to bring him some fresh juice. (Riki L.)
