High quality and freshness of what the farmers and locals bring to this market is what sets it apart from all others. The "vibe" is certainly there and there is no mistaking that. Whether its a bite to eat or fresh produce or flowers, you can't beat the cost and quality/selections. I am still on the fence about the meat... More

We go across the freeway to the Central Market for Cheeches chicken, go back to Ftoni's for our meat. Everything is restaurant quality. They will cut the steaks for your preference. We have gone...

My friend, who has lived in Detroit for 2 years, says, I have to take you to this farmer's market. Off we went. Detroit's Eastern Market is huge and filled with individual and commercial vendors. It's a sampler's paradise. The prices were way cheaper than a grocery store and towards the end of the day they begin marking down all... More

Saturday morning at Eastern Market is always a good time. People watching and buying fresh produce. Parking was not a problem, but bring a wagon if you plan on buying a lot. Numerous of interesting stores and places to eat. Streetside entertainment is eclectic and interesting. The city keeps working on the surrounding area and needs to continue. Safe surroundings...

This market is so much fun with so much to choose from! Be ready to walk! We went during the summer and there were so many stalls to choose from; everything from fresh fruit and veggies to fish to cheese to meat, etc., etc. I wouldn't be able to choose from just one! We've made a list of what we... More

There are tons of vendors and so much fresh produce to choose from. My personal favorite vendors are Rightfully Raw and a really nice man who sells homemade... More

Great farmer's market with tons of cheap produce. Lots of other handicrafts and other vendors too. There are plenty of other shops and restaurants around the market as well. Great way to spend a Saturday morning.
