Eastern Market is a wholesale center, a farmer’s market, a gathering place, a prime people-watching destination and a neighborhood. This historic area of the city is the place to begin a Saturday in Detroit and it is only a short walk up Gratiot Avenue from most downtown hotels. Multiple market sheds and surrounding businesses flood with tens of thousands of people from all over the region, buying and selling everything from freshly-baked bread to vegetables grown right in the city. Even if you’re not in the market for excellent local produce, don’t miss a visit here for breakfast in one of the local cafes. The market is open 5AM-5PM on Saturdays, but early is best.
