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

We love visiting Saturdays, shopping and talking to local food vendors. They are open year-round--although there is more selection and much bigger crowds from May-October, many vendors also sell at the market through the holidays and into January, and you can avoid the crowds off season. Local beef, fresh eggs, pork, baked goods are always available along with specialty coffees,... More

If you need an uplifting Saturday trip head downtown Detroit to the Eastern Market. On Saturdays the focus is foodie paradise, on Sundays it is Detroit based products. Don't miss places include the Capuchin On the Rise bakery booth. Cinnamon rolls to die for made by men who are working toward positive life changes, Detroit Pickles and more local veggies... More

Arrive early to get adequate parking. Lots of fun and great 'people watching.' If you cannot find what you are looking for (or not looking for) at the Eastern Market something is wrong. This trip focused on food and firs (holiday trim). Glad we brought a wagon because their was a lot of booty. Unfortunately, you cannot take the wagon... More

Farmers from all over Michigan and upper Ohio come to Eastern Market to sell their produce. Actually, you will also see some "artzy" sellers so have fun

Stopped by a yr ago on a Friday and only the permanent shops were open. Stopped by on a Sat(2 days ago) and even though it was 40 degrees and raining--it was very enjoyable. Nice mix of vendors, people and goods. Still a decent crowd. Mix of produce; flowers; foods; baked goods etc. Can't imagine how crowded it would be... More

They have everything u need; I really like the seafood mart, got whatever u want, prices are nice. I went down here because I was in town for a family dinner and my relatives kept telling me about this Eastern Market, so I decided to go and check it out. When I went inside I couldn't believe it; it was... More

Took another trip to Eastern Market this morning - what a great way to start your Saturday morning. Definitely not as crowded in the fall as it is in the summer, but there is still a great selection of fruit, veggies, and much more. Vendors are very friendly and attentive. Scored some of the last Michigan blueberries, as well as... More

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
