Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace received six honors in Hour Detroit’s 2021 Best of Detroit awards.

Nino’s earned five first place wins:

  • Best Bakery
  • Best Butcher Shop
  • Best Catering
  • Best Gourmet Foods
  • Best Wine Store
  • Best Flower Shop


The Best of Detroit awards are fitting as Nino’s features a premier meat selection with a neighborhood butcher shop experience, fresh artisan bakery, vast assortment of wine and beer from around the world, sushi made fresh daily, expanded prepared foods-to-go, floral, catering and event planning services.

“On behalf of everyone at Nino’s, we want to thank our loyal customers who voted for us,” said Frank Nicolella, one of the company’s owners. “We wouldn’t be the best without our amazing employees who deliver on our promise of quality, value and outstanding customer service.” Nino’s also was awarded third place as Best Flower Shop. “We’re delighted with this win though we know our customers consider us number one in their book!” added Nicolella. What began as a small neighborhood fruit market in 1979 has grown into four dynamic locations: St. Clair Shores, Clinton Township, Troy and Bloomfield Township. Children of the late Nino Salvaggio, Leo Salvaggio and Andrea and Frank Nicolella, continue to build upon his rich legacy with company president Kirk Taylor. “It is humbling to receive recognition for what we love doing most — delivering outstanding products and services with a smile,” said Taylor.
