Suburban salutes Clawson Farmers Market

Clawson, MI

At Suburban Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Troy, summer means heading outdoors and taking advantage of nature’s bounty. There’s no better place to do that than at Clawson Farmers Market. Just head south on I-75, and head to Clawson City Park at the corner of West Elmwood and North Custer avenues.

This seasonal open-air market features fresh fruits and vegetables —along with plenty of inspiration for your summer meals and barbecues. It’s open Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from July 14 through September 29 (Closed Labor Day weekend).

As you walk the park, you’ll find vendors from all around the Metro Detroit area. It’s the best time ever to patronize local Michigan farmers and area businesses. Here in Michigan, we know better than anyone else why buying USA is the best — and buying Michigan is even better!

Beyond all the yummy locally grown produce, keep your eyes open for McClure’s Pickles, breads, jams, honey, other organic products, gourmet coffees and even some crafts. If you’ve never been to a farmers market before, we’ve tracked down some tips on how to make the most of your farmers market shopping, such as:

  • Go early or go late. Early, you’ll have the most choices. Late, you’ll get the best bargains on whatever is left.
  • Bring bags. Vendors often have thin plastic bags, but if you bring your own, you’ll cut down on plastic pollution, and/or you’ll have a carry-all to make multiple purchases easier.
  • Bring $1 and $5 bills. Farmers market participants tend to be small vendors, not big corporations. Make life easier for everyone by carrying small bills and not asking them to break twenties or fifties, or even tens, if you’re not buying a lot.
  • Learn how to store, clean and cook what you buy. You can scour the Internet for ideas when you get home, but it’s best to ask the vendor while you’re buying.

Whether you get your produce from Clawson or another Michigan farmers market, it helps to know what to do with it once you get it home. You can head to Eating Well magazine for some terrific ideas.

Some Sundays, you’ll find live entertainment and kids’ activities at Clawson Farmers Market. You may be able to get advance information by checking out the Clawson Farmers Market Facebook page for interesting event and food details.

You can also peek at the City of Clawson Facebook page to see what else you can do while you’re in town. Before or after you hit Clawson, why not come in to Suburban Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Troy and take a look at a Chrysler Limited Convertible, a Dodge Dart, and Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ram Quad Cab or any of our amazing vehicles? They’re all roomy enough to bring home your farmers market bounty!

Chrysler Keeping and Expanding “Imported from Detroit” Tagline

Imported from Detroit

Chrysler is continuing to use the “Imported from Detroit” tagline, one of the most memorable and successful slogans ever used by an automaker.

History of “Imported from Detroit”

Chrysler first used the “Imported from Detroit” tagline during the 2011 Super bowl. The first-ever two minute Super bowl commercial featured rapper Eminem cruising the streets of urban Detroit in a restyled Chrysler 200 sedan. While Eminem drives through Detroit, he passes run-down houses and empty warehouses. He also passes Detroit’s impressive architecture, statues, and sculptures, and eventually passes through a thriving downtown area. A narrator asks “what does a town that’s been to hell and back know about the finer things in life?”

He answers, “Well I’ll tell ya, more than most.”

The commercial gave a rugged, persevering impression of Detroit, a town that had seen a massive amount of strife during the recent economic struggles starting in 2008.

Chrysler successfully connected itself with Detroit, aka Motor City, and made itself synonymous with the town’s hard-working, never-say-die attitude. The spot earned notable praise and numerous awards from the advertising industry and is credited with helping Chrysler rebuild its image.

Chrysler is keeping the Campaign

The “Imported from Detroit” campaign has been successful, and Chrysler has said that they plan on expanding the uses of the tagline in future commercials and advertisements. Although the tagline has been an undisputed success, there were previous rumors that Chrysler would discontinue the slogan.

Chrysler, however, responded to the rumors by telling the Detroit Free Press that they would not only keep the slogan, but they intend to expand its use. Chrysler is using the tagline in a partnership with clothing manufacturer Carhartt, which is also based in the Detroit area.

The automaker produced another Super bowl ad featuring Clint Eastwood, called “Halftime in America”, which used the resurgence in Detroit as an example of how the country as a whole can come through tough times, emerging stronger and more resilient than ever. The ad aired during halftime of the 2012 Super bowl, and was another popular spot for Chrysler.

These commercials, and the “Imported from Detroit” tagline, display Chrysler’s commitment to the American automotive industry and the people it serves, including employees, factory workers, and Chrysler’s customers.
