The market that nourishes our city’s soul

Welcome to the largest historic market in the country, a 4.5-acre celebration of the freshest, most wholesome fruits, vegetables, specialty foods, art and music, all undeniably Detroit. Join us—to explore our district-wide activities, attend our multi-day markets or help us nourish the greater community.

So much to see. So much to do.

Where will you start?

Saturday Market is just one of our six markets. Why not try them all?

Live, work, sell or volunteer—how would you like to join our community?

Detroit Kitchen Connect

Do you have a food business you'd like to get off the ground? We've created a partnership with Food Lab Detroit to offer kitchen space, technical assistance and workshops to help you get there.


Tailgating at Eastern Market

Defend the den! Join thousands of fans who gather in our parking lots for every Lions game. Come cook out, hang out and grab a shuttle to the game. A one-day parking pass is required.

A donation of $25 or more makes you a Friend of Eastern Market. You'll be helping put healthy food on Detroit's tables, educating children about nutrition, helping local farmers, and keeping Eastern Market vibrant and safe. You're also invited to our Friends Welcome Breakfast. With friends like you, anything is possible.
