i shop at carlas twice a week and i love her store. i was reading the reviews that some people have submitted like their cashier and i was very upset. the reason why was because i think that this its a beautiful store. that cashier must have been crazy or very bored. In order for someone to write something like that about people is just not right, i cant believe she called them imigrants. i came to the conclusion that she must have been more of the jealous type, i think. i think this because she started talking about mimmo and his daughter who apparently has nice things. if a father really loves his daughter he will get her what she asks for. since i shop at carla's all the time i met his daughter who is working at the cashiers now, she is the sweetest person i have ever met. i met carla, mimmo and their son, all of them have been the best of help when ever i am at the store. i cant believe that a cashier who has time on her hands wants to put a buisness down. just incase she hasnt noticed the economy hasnt been doing well and many citizen have been laid off. its like she wants a buisness to fail and she doesnt even know how bad that would hurt the citizens of oxford. the last thing that i would like to say is that carla's is a great store and the people of oxford have realized that.

i was recently in carlas and i asked her if she could donate a fruit tray for my daughters 1st birthday pary, she was the nicest women that i have ever met. without me even calling and letting her know a head of time she made the fruit tray. i apoligized but she was just happy to help. while i was waiting i looked at how fresh everything looked i wish that there was more buisness because we need people like this in our world.

First off, I would like to say I worked for Carla's Market as a cashier. I cannot tell you how many times customer's came back into Carla's with products that have been expired. And to those who think the bread is "so fresh" take a deeper look into the bread bins, there is a fruit fly problem because Mimmo, the italian owner has the heat on so high that there is even flys around the samples. The lunchmeat is rancid and the dates aren't really checked. And then on top of this, the owner Mimmo hires cashiers for a month, fires them all then does it all over again. I filled out a half a sheet of paper that was like a "home made" w2 form and he does this so he won't have to claim taxes on any of the workers and pays them under the table. My sister and all the other cashiers were let go supposably because he didnt have enough business and can't pay the bill but when his 17 year old daughter is driving around a Mercedez and wearing 400$ purses it makes me think that I need to call the labor law.
THEY WILL BE DEPORTED!

Everyone at Carla's was so helpful. Everything in the store looked very fresh, i would of liked to see them carry more organic fruit, but they organic grocery was more than enough. It has been be far the cleanest market i have ever been to.

I went in last weekend for the about the 5th time & again was ignored at the meat counter for about 5 minutes. The counter is high, I am 5'3 & their should be a bell to ring like any other deli. I was in the store for 40 minutes(most of it spent at the meat & deli counter) & it takes forever for them to slice & bag lunchmeat. I will probably not return as I can go to Harvest Time & Hollywood & get waited on a lot quicker(and a lot friendlier). Prices are ok, but service stinks.

I love to shop at Carla's. Everyone was super helpful. Their meat and produce were wonderful. Everything looks fresh and clean and well lit. Their bread selections were awesome. I can't say enough good things about this store.

Carala's won't stay in business!! The help is awful, and prices are way to high. The prices offered are loss leaders just to get you into the store. The owners picked the wrong location for this store. Honestly, I don't think our area is ready for a Vic & Joe's style market, (owners are related) during this economy. Then again, if you've got that "extra money", go for it.

I would suggest Harvest Time Farm Market across the street. Not exactly cheep, but very good for what they do. They have also been serving our area for years. Very friendly staff!

Carla's Fresh Garden, though small, has a wide variety of deli items and international foods not readily available in Northern Oakland County. I found the deli staff eager to please, though not too familiar with some of the items. That I'm sure will come to some of the younger staff in time as they gain experience. Rather than one clerk filling an order, if another clerk was without a customer, they worked together-nice.

The fresh produce and pre-packaged merchandise was excellent in variety and quality as well.

Hands down they beat the limited chain grocery stores in quality & variety.

First I must add that I was extremely excited that Carla's Fresh Market was coming to Oxford, MI. It's exactly the type of local fruit market that the community needed.

Now with that said I must also express my disappointment with the level of service in the store. I've been in the store several times and have not been able to get out of store under 45 minutes and this is not by choice. The extra long wait is always at the meat, deli and food counters where they only have one person servicing the customers waiting. I have stood and waited on average of 15-20 before I get anyone to assist me. The other problem area is the cash registers. Again, not enough staff on the registers when busy and then continuous problems with the equipment. Every other item is not recognized in the system which slows down the lines. With my last experience, after my large order was scanned and rung up, the cashier told me that the cash register had cleared the whole order. He proceeded to have to un-bag all of the items and rescan them all over again. This was very long and frustrating for me as well as the customers waiting behind me.

Please take this as constructive feedback and address and improve your service. I really would like to see your business succeed in our town but most likely will stop shopping at Carla's unless service improves.

Kindest Regards

Carla's Market has fresh fruit, veggies and plenty of gourmet items that make you feel as though you are over in Rochester at one of the gourmet food stores. There were plenty of organic goods and the bakery items were luscious. The meat counter had a very nice selection. There were a number of plants and flowers that you could buy for your own garden as well. Carla's is a nice addition to our community.
