The Eastern Market is one of the best things to do in Detroit! Great people watching, great food to try, and great shopping for local produce and food. Multiple great local restaurants nearby if you dont eat at the actual stalls. It is worth stopping to watch folks perform at the outdoor Karaoke across the street and the barbecue is... More

My daughters and I have been attending the Detroit Eastern Market for years now. It is one of our favorite summer traditions. It's an hour away from us, but well worth the drive. There is just so much to experience, from all the different produce, flower, and food vendors to the decades old shops around town, and the street side... More

I went to visit the market on a Sunday. This is the first year that they are opened on Sundays. Local artisans were there selling things like homemade soaps, jewelry, and clothing. A couple of food vendors were there and I only saw one booth selling fresh vegetables. It was nice, but I couldn't help but wonder if it would... More

Best place for flowers and fresh vegetables. Go hungry and enjoy all of the different types of food that you can find there. Many times there are other activities going on in the market that really make this the place to be.

My first time in Detroit for the Eastern Market. I was so amazed at all that was to offer. Kale chips, Jamaica jerk seasoning, loose leaf tea, jelly, jams, kettle corn & so much more. They are only open on Saturday, which I was surprised. They also have restaurants that grill outside for you to purchase food and drinks. But... More

I love the Detroit Eastern Market. I try to go a few times during the summer to get fresh veggies. I also attend the annual flower day event every May. The prices are good and the selection is outstanding!

We recently visited Eastern Market on Saturday and I must admit, I wish I lived closer. The flowers were beautiful, the fresh food and produce looked and tasted good and each of the vendors were friendly. It is what I like to refer to as: "One stop shopping." I hope you all take the time to experience the Eastern Market... More

The air is bustling with excitement and people in this unique Saturday market. An amazing variety of fresh produce, eggs, honey, baked goods, flowering baskets, plants and flowers abound. Vendors call out their fare and prices. Outdoor street BBQ and music adds to the experience. Area shops featuring wine, antiques, unique food items and butcher shops are further attractions. Prices... More

This is Detroit's greatest gem, if you ask me. The place is alive, interesting, friendly people, and it's practical too! Go on Saturdays to review the amazing variety and samples of produce and other food, and it tends to be very high quality and very inexpensive. We got a week's worth of vegetables for $15! If you walk the perimeter... More
