Each week thousands flock to Eastern Market to enjoy one of the most authentic urban adventures in the United States. The Market and the adjacent district are rare finds in a global economy - a local food district with more than 250 independent vendors and merchants processing, wholesaling, and retailing food. At the heart of Eastern Market is a six-block public market that has been nourishing Detroit since 1891. Every Saturday it transforms into a vibrant marketplace with hundreds of open-air stalls offering great selections of fruits, veggies, fresh-cut flowers, locally produced specialty food products, and pasture and/or grass-fed meat. Additional market days include Detroit Eastern Market Tuesdays as well as Sunday Street Market, both occurring seasonally, from mid-Spring through the autumn months. Tuesdays feature a sampling of our historic Market experience, welcoming farmers, produce dealers, and prepared-food vendors, but adding educational, wellness, and culinary events. On Sundays the focus shifts to non-food items such as home goods, art, jewelry, vintage clothing, antiques, and furniture. Visit Eastern Market to devour the region's bountiful harvest, find paradise in the diverse array of plants and flowers, relax the mind and body during a free yoga session, and experience the creative workings of talented local artisans. You're invited to relish in the colorful stories of the market and its characters.
