Detroit's historic Eastern Market district has much to offer the traveler, day and night. Let's start with the murals. When I was in Detroit, Eastern Market had just added over 40 wonderful new murals, to the many that were already there. This outdoor gallery is spread throughout the district, so it's best to scout them by car, before heading out... More

Had the best coffee of anywhere I went in Detroit at the Urban Grounds coffee caravan at the Eastern Markets. Even in winter found a pretty good range of produce. Don't assume everything is local though, be sure to ask. Amazing range of meats.

Did a Feet on the Street walking tour with more tastes of good food and thriving new and old businesses than we could explore during our 4 hour walking tour. Certainly whetted my appetite for more.

Great experience! It's the best market we've been to in our travels all over the country and even outside. It's safe; get there and enjoy it!

This market is perhaps exactly what you would expect from Detroit. A bit unkempt and rundown, but also full of flavour and eccentricities. The market is spread over various halls, and then some, pushing into any nearby building where it can. The variety of food on hand is astounding, and if you come here hungry, you will leave having tried... More

I was initially not all that keen to visit the Market, but we were really glad that we did! It was lovely to stroll through, grab a coffee, admire the produce and learn a little more about what makes this remarkable city tick. I bought an Eastern Market T-shirt, and was amazed how many people commented on it when I... More

Eastern Market is a mostly open venue, so when the Arctic Express sweeps down from Canada, it can be miserable. Nonetheless, we visited again, on a cold January day, to see if distant relatives were holding forth in their farmer's stall. Alas, not. But there were a number of others, selling cider, apple chips, sausage (Jack and Winston LOVED the... More

I'm from Detroit and I luv to buy local! The farmers always have what you're looking for from eggs, to fruit and veggies to plants! There's also the vendor who will do a floral💐 arrangement for you, Floyd! I'm truly amazed how friendly the people who visit here every Saturday are! We have local business selling everything from #SweetPotatoPies to... More

Eastern market gives me such a feel for Detroit. It is not your typical gentrified market. It has people from all walks of life. There are cool restaurants and shops in the square that are open all year. The market has indoor areas. They have very unique products. I picked up a bottle of Mc Cleary Bros drinking shrubs and...

It is the longest running farmers market in Michigan for a reason! There are so many indoor and outdoor sheds and many specialty shops in the surrounding area. Eastern Market is great place all year long! You can get fruit, vegetables, herbs, and breads. In addition there are plants, flowers, christmas trees, wreaths, and artesanal home decorations.
