Eastern Market
save place
The Breadbasket of Detroit
The eat-fresh, know-your-farmer trend that's sweeping the United States hasn't skipped over Detroit. But lest you think Eastern Market is just like the pokey farmer's markets cropping up all over the country, know this: Eastern Market is an entire neighborhood with a goal no less grand than becoming the food district for Detroit, and doing it in a way that retains the neighborhood's intrinsic funkiness. There's produce aplenty at the Saturday and Tuesday farmer's markets, but if you miss one of those days, you're in luck: the neighborhood is stocked with butchers, bakers, fishmongers and everyone else you'd need to prepare your next city picnic.
