Shop at One of the Largest Year-Round Markets in the Country

The Eastern Market dates back more than 150 years making it one of the oldest and largest year-round markets in the country.

Its goal is to make a healthier, wealthier, and happier Detroit, and while the Saturday market is open weekly, the Tuesday and Sunday markets are open seasonally through September.

Saturday is the best day to shop as there are more than 225 vendors including:

J&M Farm

Family owned and operated since 1983, J&M Farm has won the Homegrown Championship at the Eastern Michigan State Fair for six consecutive years. It began from humble beginnings with a small barn on one acre, and today it includes the original property as well as five acres from one neighbor and two acres from another. At the market, the family sells all cuts of pork, brown eggs, smoked dog bones, and more.

Five Star Cake Company 

Known for making the best carrot cake in Detroit, the Five Star Cake Company specializes in gourmet dessert cakes and pastries made with quality ingredients and no preservatives. Owner Starlett Simmons spent years working in the corporate world before deciding to enroll in a pastry arts program, and customers often compliment her on her delicious creations. In addition to the carrot cake, the menu also includes lemon sugar cookies, vanilla bean cake, and strawberry cake.

Mrs. Pruitt’s Cha Cha Gourmet Salsa

Since the 19th century, Ma Pruitt’s salsa recipe has been handed down through the family for generations. They grow their own vegetables and take pride in urban farming. The salsa is both gluten-free and vegan-friendly and comes in mild and hot.
