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

I love eastern Market, but if you are planning to go, especially in the summer, make sure to go in the morning before 9 ish otherwise good luck finding a parking spot! 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.

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
