Looking for vanilla powder - DTW

I'll be in the Royal Oak area this weekend and am looking for a specialty/ethnic market or baker's supply that would sell pure vanilla powder (not the stuff with sugar & silica, etc.). Has anyone purchased this or know where to buy? Not looking for fancy - some vanilla powders run $20 for 2.5 oz, which is too much for me! Will also be on the east side (Fraser, St. Clair Shores) so I can stop anywhere along 696. Thanks for your help!

  1. Here are a few places I'd try:

    Holiday Market, Royal Oak

    I don't know of any baker's supply right in Royal Oak, but here are a couple places on the east side:

    Miles Cake & Candy is on Gratiot N of 16 Mile
    Heinrich's 8160 E 10 Mile Centerline 586-758-5100

    Heinrich's would be closest to 696.

    There's also a smaller cake/candy supply place in St Clair Shores, but I haven't been there in a while: Cake & Candy Cupboard 23509 Nine Mack 586-779-6375
