Eastern Market

The Eastern Market area is located directly north of Gratiot Avenue (US 25) and east of Interstate 75, and is approximately one mile northeast of Detroit's Downtown.

Everything from luscious and colorful farm fresh fruits and vegetables, meat products (beef, pork, lamb, poultry, geese, ducks and rabbits) to herbs and spices, nuts, candies and a variety of condiments are all supplied by the retailers and wholesalers spread over a 43-acre area. They are open six days a week, and closed on Sundays.

It is estimated that on any particular Saturday, approximately 45,000 people turn out to shop at the open air market for products from as near as Michigan, Ohio and Canadian farms to as far as the European, Middle East, Asian and South American Farming Areas.
