I love going to Eastern Market. You can always get great bargains on fresh food. Parking can be a problem, especially on special days like Flower Day. There are a lot of businesses around the sheds that are worth a visit. I love the spice shop and Germacks! Wear sensible shoes because you will walk a lot, and remember to... More

My family and I enjoyed our trip here, though I admit it would have been a lot more enjoyable in the summer rather than the winter! I would definitely recommend a visit. Bring plenty of singles and fives!

Eastern Market is a vibrant place in Detroit. Small entrepreneurs. Local farmers. The Market shows Detroit's alive and kicking! Just stroll around. The energy of the people will grab you.

We really enjoyed talking with the many vendors at Eastern Market. Regardless of whether we purchased or not, they were keen to engage in conversation. What a fun mix of merchants, farmers and entrepreneurs from across the greater Detroit region. So much energy at the Eastern Market!

I didn't know what to expect when we decided to go here, but we had heard that it was worth the trip. That is an understatement. This is the largest Farmers Market that I have ever been to. There is a huge selection and it is surrounded by a Commission Row of produce and butcher establishments. All the booths had... More

The stores and shops surrounding the market make it an additionally great stop. It was on my bucket list for years. I am so glad I... More
