Jars @ Platt & Packard Roads
Jars is part of a large corporate group of dispensaries in Michigan and Arizona. I favor local and independent dispensaries and Jars is just not that. This particular dispensary, a block away from my home, is the closest dispensary to me. Yet, I would rather buy from a locally owned dispensary.
Still, Jars at Platt & Packard is in an old beautifully converted gas station. My neighborhood was glad to see the ratty old gas station completely renovated and the property now being taken care of. Walking in, you’re greeted by a guard. If you’ve been reading these posts, you’ll know this is one of my pet peeves. I’ll truly be glad when Federal banking regulations change.
Jars has reasonable pricing and is a comfortable place to shop. Although, if you’re looking for organic weed, the selection is limited. As a medical patient, I had to buy off the recreational menu to buy organic. I might shop here again, but probably only because it’s the closest dispensary to my home.

What’s Near this Dispensary
DJs is consistently ranked in the top two for ‘Best Donuts’. Although others also rave about their soft pretzels. For some of the best pretzels and donuts, DJs Bakery is conveniently next door to Jars Dispensary. People drive from all over the city to get these pretzels and donuts!
Achilles Coney Restaurant
A local Greek-owned restaurant is just down the block, on the other side of DJs Bakery. Achilles is a throwback to great service and comfort food, all at reasonable prices.
County Farm Park
County Farm Park, at 141 acres, is a great place to stretch your legs or have a picnic. It’s less than a mile away with dirt and asphalt hiking trails. The community gardens are beautiful when in season – roughly May through the first frost.
County Farm Park has picnic tables scattered around both entrances. In the event of rain, there are large pavilions at each parking lot. The restrooms are at the Platt Rd entrance. There’s a nice playground for kids too. This is a perfect place to chill out.
Not too far away, at Southeast Park, you’ll find full-court basketball, play structures, and walking paths. Just go south on Platt towards Ellsworth and turn right. You can’t miss the park on your right.
Specialty Grocery Stores in Southeast Ann Arbor
This is a great side of town for small specialty grocery shopping.
Bombay Grocers, where anything you need to create a South Asian meal can be found. In the front, for a special homemade snack you can find some of the best samosas in town. Great for the munchies! Bombay Grocers has a 2nd location in Cincinnati, OH
Euro Market is across the street and one block away and worth the walk. You can find most Eastern European foods here. This is the only Eastern European food market in the area.
About 4 doors down from JARS is Galleria Market, the local Asian Food Market. You’ll find harder-to-find items here along with everyday items.
