This is the wholesale food distribution center in Detroit. The public portion of the area is a shimmering island centered in a less then impressive neighbor hood of depression era brick somewhat maintained warehouses. This time was enough.

I visited Detroit for a short break and was lucky enough to visit eastern market this Saturday. It has a proper feeling of what Detroit is and the murals all around infuse the place with its deep history. The market place and the surrounding shop fronts are perfect for buying fresh food and local produce as well as gifts from... More

I have visited the Eastern Market a few times. In addition to being like a Farmers Market on steroids, there is a feel of excitement in the air. There are so many cultures under one roof, it was a true multi-cultural experience. This is something to see if you are visiting Detroit.

Went to All Things Detroit held at Eastern Market. As always, the Market is always a great place to go for homegrown - whether it's food, drink, crafts, art, etc. and this event made it that much more enjoyable.

We had been to Eastern Market some years ago, on a warm day and the market was in full operation. So what I mean by an "off day" is simply that it was not a market day when all of the produce, meat, and other goods was open. And so it was pretty quiet. Nonetheless, we visited shops and made...

What a good time this place is before a Lions game. We had a big family group, including kids and adults of all ages - everybody had a good time. My most important piece of advice is to be aware of what lot you are getting you pass in and just be prepared for what the atmosphere is going to... More

I was visiting Detroit for a sporting event and decided to come here for some fresh food on our way out of town and it was great! It was chilly the day we went and it is mostly an outdoor market so make sure to dress warm if you go near the end of the season. They had great coffee... More

My wife and I love shopping here. If it's not here, it doesn't exist. The best time to get here is in late summer when the produce is ready and ripe. Get there early in the morning, because it gets mobbed around 9:00am. We've been going for years and still haven't seen everything in the Eastern Market area.

I was in Ann Arbor for the week-end, and I read nice comments on this market, so I decided to drive there, on a Saturday morning. It was great! And not just the market itself, but also the whole area. Try the delicious brownies and lemon bars at The Bake Shop (Shed 3). Interesting restaurants and stores in the few... More

This was the most amazing farmer's market I have ever seen, anywhere. I would say this is bigger and better than DC's Eastern Market, and San Francisco's Ferry Terminal, hands down. There were 6 huge buildings full of produce, flowers, baked goods, musicians, cooking demos, ready-to-eat food, crafts, it was incredible. People clearly come to do a lot of their... More
