This is a large market spread out throughout several blocks and buildings. We were there late winter so I imagine in the summer the market also extends outside. I loved the atmosphere here especially out in the surrounding fringe areas of the market. Lots of interesting warehouses open to the public. My only regret is that I did not have... More

I love buying fresh, local produce. My family now makes regular weekend trips to this giant half indoor/half outdoor market. Also a great selection of meat and plants... you never know what you will find there. However, one this is for sure.... you will be leaving hands full of great stuff.

Haven't been to the Eastern Market in ages. It is still the best farmers' market we've ever been to, including Chicago and Cleveland. It just goes on and on and makes one wonder how Detroit could possibly have a problem. The kids loved exploring all the stores surrounding the market as well.

This is the best market! We purchase excellent items like killer hummus, feta cheese and olives from Gabrielle's also Adams meats for chicken shawarma and lamb Kafka. Grab a chess pie at Loves.

I've been going to Eastern Market since I was a kid. Whether it's Saturday mornings during the summer or the annual flower day...it's one of a kind. The later you go, the better the deals. The meat market and wine shops are wonderful too. Be sure to bring your Radio Flyer or Make Shift Buggy to transport your goodies. Also,... More

First visit to Detroit. Eastern Market was on the "must see" list. Busy and exciting. So many fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs, breads, sweets, ethnic foods.....so much stuff, so little time. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I live on the western side of Michigan, and have a Bed and Breakfast. I kept hearing about the Eastern Market. Since I am a food lover, I was intrigued by the fantastic descriptions my guests would give. We found a bit of downtime in late February and set out across the state on a Michigan Winter Vacation. We made... More

We thought parking would be a problem and maybe in the summer it is hard to find a spot, but we didn't have any trouble. We bought lots of bread, sweets, coffee, meat sticks, cheese and other goodies. We'll be back!
