Eastern Market is known as the largest historic market in the country that celebrates “the freshest, most wholesome fruits, vegetables, specialty foods, art and music, all undeniably Detroit.” However, many do not realize the retail options that exist both in and around its 4.5 acres. Several stores and boutiques have opened up in the past few years, making Eastern Market your one-stop shopping destination
