I've been going to Eastern Market since I was a kid. Whether it's Saturday mornings during the summer or the annual flower day...it's one of a kind. The later you go, the better the deals. The meat market and wine shops are wonderful too. Be sure to bring your Radio Flyer or Make Shift Buggy to transport your goodies. Also,... More

First visit to Detroit. Eastern Market was on the "must see" list. Busy and exciting. So many fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs, breads, sweets, ethnic foods.....so much stuff, so little time. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I live on the western side of Michigan, and have a Bed and Breakfast. I kept hearing about the Eastern Market. Since I am a food lover, I was intrigued by the fantastic descriptions my guests would give. We found a bit of downtime in late February and set out across the state on a Michigan Winter Vacation. We made... More

We thought parking would be a problem and maybe in the summer it is hard to find a spot, but we didn't have any trouble. We bought lots of bread, sweets, coffee, meat sticks, cheese and other goodies. We'll be back!

Been back in Detroit for a month and I try to go every other Saturday. This is one of the best markets of this type in the country, especially with all the surrounding stores. When I used to go down there in the late 60's and early 70's, it was not as clean or safe. I always feel safe down... More

We've been going to Eastern Market when Samuel Brothers (corned beef) was packed starting at 5 a.m. on Saturdays but it is a little more dangerous now a days. Last year had our hubcaps stolen and two young kids started following us and demanded money Told them to go to hell. Then as I was looking for grapes I suddenly... More
