Stay Fueled on Long Holiday Trips at DTW


Remember when you were a kid and flying was the coolest thing you ever got to do? It’s the closest thing to realizing your superhero dreams and it feels amazing.

Unfortunately, when you’re older, flying loses a bit of that appeal. You’re taller so the ride is uncomfortable and if you’re a frequent flier, you’re probably doing it for business and not pleasure. Even if you’re just traveling to see family for the holidays, flying has a way of making you feel exhausted. Luckily, Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) has some great, locally-sourced options for a quick refuel whether you’re on your first leg or your last.

As with all Plum Market locations, the McNamara Terminal location brings fresh food in both a grocery store and restaurant style. Known as “grocerants,” here you’ll be able to find snacks and drinks you can take to-go and a menu of food prepared in-house. Grab a seat at the bar or one of the communal high-top tables to enjoy a healthy meal before or after boarding your next flight.
