We were told this would be a great place to get tree for our yard. I would not recommend this. While there were quite a few trees the problem is there are no warranties available like most nurseries. The prices were pretty good and a couple only took cash. As for the whole Eastern Market experience, very cool. This is... More

The Eastern Market has been a favorite of mine since I moved to Detroit in 1972. It is the largest outdoor produce and flower market in the country and it also has indoor markets - Gratiot meat market. DeVries with cheese from all over the world, candies, cookies, pasta, coffee, preserves, oils, fresh bread from local bakeries, and a wicker... More

Finally after living most of my adult life in Metro Detroit I made a visit to the Eastern Market. Why oh why did I wait so long. One day a year, Eastern Market turns into Detroit's biggest flower garden. It was awesome to see so many flowers, bushes and trees in one place. Truly a beautiful site. The prices were... More

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Vibrant market coupled with plenty of restaurants and entertainment. Did I mention the Eastern Market is excellent? Hands down the best market ever. Lots of excitement and everything and anything to buy, editable and non-editable - bring some $$$, it disappears rather quickly~money well spent, no disappointments.

We went on a Tuesday, with the upside of easy free parking and smaller crowds. For an urban environment, it's really outdoorsy like a farmers market, with locally-produced food and veg, honeys, vinegars and handcrafted goods. THE HIGHLIGHTS for us were ducking in to the Detroit City Distillery for an amazing hand crafted cocktail using their own distilled gin, and... More

There are 5 open air sheds clustered together at this 124yr old city market in Detroit. Great prices on local produce and plants for the garden. Try and go early or the parking is terrible! Hint we wish we'd known: If you have a rolling cart or wagon, bring it to carry watermelon or heavy plants!

The Eastern Market is a true gem in Detroit it has been totally redone but still has its old school edge. Gets pretty crowded at times but worth every step.

We enjoyed the market on both a Saturday and Sunday and were glad to get to walk amongst locals, farmers, and artists. Our visits to the market solidified our love for Detroit. We found the market and people to be down-to-earth, diverse, endless creativity, good prices, helpful, and happy. There is nothing to fear about Detroit from what we could... More

Easily the highlight of our trip to Detroit. Great vibe, lots to explore, very cool shops in various nooks and crannies and of course a wide variety of tasty food. Unfortunately only had time for one visit but we had the pizza at Supino's for lunch and it was excellent. Would definitely have planned a return visit if I were... More
