I went there on a Sunday at the end of September. It wasn't busy at all. Probably because many restaurants were closed on that day. But there was a few food trucks. I had a schnitzel pita at the Pita Post, which was really good! For dessert, I had a chocolate mousse from Birdie's, which was also very good. I... More

We stopped down in the Eastern Market after work on Friday. First order of business was to wander around taking pictures of the really cool artwork/murals on many buildings. We also stopped at Devries and a quick head poke into the beer/wine place South of Devries (sorry, forgot the name) both of these places are cool and have some great... More

Eastern Market is my favorite place in Michigan. It is a breath of fresh air in the middle of a city that has it's fair share of challenges. No matter what the season Saturday's at the market are good days. People are friendly, parking is easy, and the food trucks are amazing. I love the diversity of food, flavors, murals,... More

We loved visiting Eastern Market last weekend to attend Murals in the Market. We toured multiple sheds, enjoyed lunch at Vivio's, and viewed creative murals in a free walking tour. We felt like we were on vacation in our own city - the diverse selection of produce, plants & art, friendly vendors and a feeling of joie de vivre. Linger... More

Highly recommend this open-air market in Detroit for a Saturday morning visit. Good variety of sellers, good prices and good fun people.

I absolutely love visiting Eastern Market. The wide selection of organic fruits and vegetables from Michigan farmers is like a nowhere else here in our Mitten state. Aside from the fresh produce, meats and wonderful homemade desserts, I also make it a point to visit every spring for flowers for both of my patios, my deck and the yard. I... More

As a visitor, the Eastern Market is cool to check out and have a look, but in my opinion is more for locals. Much of the market is fresh produce, so as a visitor this is not something I am looking to purchase. There are some antique markets and food stalls to peruse, so if this is your thing -... More

We were here on a Saturday. There were so many vegetables. There are so many vendors etc so the prices seem so reasonable and good. There are vendors that handle produce in large quantities and also some direct from farms in near area. It goes on and on. There are also people selling plants etc. It is a beat place... More

I've heard it's the biggest farmers market in the U.S...& I would believe that. The area is huge, packed with local produce stands, home made food, spices, clothes etc. Great bars, restaurants, meat markets. Must visit Vivio's for a bloody mary & Supino pizza for a slice of pie. I recommend calling in your order & then walking in (to... More
