Ada Fresh Market to open April 14

Kent County

ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Downtown Ada is about to open its latest addition: the Ada Fresh Market will open Sunday.

Just as with other small-scale grocery stores, shoppers will be able to find what they’re looking for but the selection will be smaller.

More and more scaled-back grocery stores are popping up around West Michigan. The Ada Fresh Market is similar in concept to the Bridge Street Market near downtown Grand Rapids.

The Ada Fresh Market is opening in the same location that Kingma’s Market occupied for around 18 months before its closure was announced in January.

SpartanNash President and CEO Dave Staples told 24 Hour News 8 he thinks the Ada Fresh Market has a more sustainable plan than the Kingma’s.

“I think the previous store didn’t really allow you do to a core shop,” Staples said. “I don’t believe you could get Jif peanut butter, I don’t believe you could get Budweiser beer, I don’t believe you could get Lays potato chips. You can get all that here.”

In addition to general grocery items, fresh produce and a deli counter, Ada Fresh Market will also sell liquor, beer and feature a salad bar like the one at Forest Hills Foods in Grand Rapids Township.

The checkout area will include both traditional checkout and self-checkout options.

Ada Fresh Market opens at 6 a.m. Sunday.
