Eastern Market is Detroit‘s historic public market district, located just a few miles north of the downtown area. The market dates back to the early 19th century, and was once the city‘s primary source of fresh produce and meats. Today, Eastern Market is still a vibrant hub of activity, with over 250 businesses, including farmers markets, art galleries, and specialty food shops. The market is especially busy on Saturdays, when thousands of people come to shop, eat, and socialize. The lively atmosphere and wide variety of vendors make Eastern Market a unique and enjoyable place to visit.
