Brush Park Bodega Will Offer Local, Fresh Market Convenience  

Brush Park Bodega will provide Brush Park residents and neighborhood visitors a convenient and walkable new market to shop when it opens to the public April 8. 

Located at 2671 Brush Street, within Bedrock’s City Modern development, the Brush Park Bodega will offer a fresh market, stocked with a variety of Michigan-made and locally sourced products. It will also feature a rotating, onsite-prepared café menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner meals and a full-service bar with a curated selection of beer, wine, and liquor, both available to enjoy in-store or takeout. 

The Bodega is an ‘all-in-one’ café, market, bar and bottleshop. As the name suggests, it is an authentic neighborhood ‘has everything’ convenience store, having ‘everything you want, and just what you need’. 

“We’re excited to bring to Brush Park a local, convenient market with all the essentials, as well as exciting products from Detroit and Michigan vendors. Our goal with the concept was to make the entire shopping experience a whole lot more fun,” said Marcus Perez, Co-Owner/Founder of Brush Park Bodega. “As part of the Bodega’s development team and a Detroit resident as well, this project is especially meaningful to me, one that I’m sure will be a beneficial addition to the area.” 

The Bodega ownership group is thrilled to open their first location and has eyes on further scaling the concept. Prior to opening, Brush Park Bodega is planning giveback initiatives with local charities as well as neighborhood senior citizen centers, special shopping extras and other community offerings. 

“Brush Park Bodega perfectly complements the progress made in City Modern,” said Naumann Idrees, Bedrock’s Senior Vice President of Leasing. “Both the modern convenience and locally-sourced products will fill a missing gap in the neighborhood to support the growing number of residents.” 

The store takes a unique modern spin on traditional convenience; the Bodega will offer delivery and pickup options, e-enabled purchasing, quick-delivery, and in-store drinking and dining to make it all a bit more fun experience.  

The design and offerings are meant to reflect the residents of the Brush Park neighborhood – expect to be able to stop in to hear the music of local Detroit artists, grab a Blake’s hard cider, purchase produce and meat sourced from Eastern Market and much more from your favorite Detroit brands. 

Robert Harriman is passionate about serving the local community first and sourcing local products. The Bodega currently several local brands including Oh Mi Chocolate, Guernsey Farms, Avalon International Bakery, Germack Pistachio Co., Dave’s Sweet Toffee and Bees in the D honey — just to name a few. 

In addition, the market is interested in hearing from other Michigan-made purveyors. For more information about how to get your product on store shelves, please direct your inquiry to Harriman’s attention at
