Among the many unique things about Mackinac Island is that it is home to the oldest grocery store in America. Doud’s Market dates to 1884 when it was founded by brothers James and Patrick Doud, whose father fled the Irish Potato Famine and came to Mackinac Island. The store is still in the family more than 135 years later, providing anything you forgot to pack and everything you didn’t even know you needed.
