Rise & Shine

Come early to Eastern Market to shop the sheds for fruits and veggies, flowers, shrubs and more. Talk to vendors for growing tips and recipes. Enjoy cooking demos and street musicians. Most important, bring a large tote or wagon for your bounty. A smorgasbord of specialty shops also call Eastern Market home. For service and style, patronize Henry the Hatter, the country’s oldest hat retailer. At 3Dogs1Cat, pick up eclectic merch for pets and their peeps. DeVries & Co. 1887  features meats and cheeses. You’ll also find Floyd, a Detroit-based furniture design brand.

Appease Your Appetite

Looking to refuel? Go to Bert’s Market Place for the outdoor barbecue and live music, or try the vegan pulled “pork” sandwich made with marinated jackfruit. There’s also always room for a slice of thin-crust pie from Supino or some steamed mussels at Vivio’s Food & Spirits, washed down with a loaded bloody mary garnished with cheese, olives, bacon, asparagus and a pickle spear.

Wet Your Whistle

Good times are always on tap at Eastern Market Brewing Co., or you can sample flights of small-batch whiskey, gin and vodka at Detroit City Distillery. Wine down at Detroit Vineyards in the historic Stroh’s ice cream factory. Tours by reservation.
