Preservation Detroit Eastern Market tours
Journey back to the earliest times of dirt paths and horse-drawn carriages, through an era when the Underground Railroad moved slaves toward freedom, to the days of rumrunners, graveyards, breweries and prisons—all in this historical walking tour of Eastern Market. The tour concludes with a glimpse of our future plans.
Feet on the Street tours
Put your feet on the street, and the rest will follow. Feet on the Street walking tours give you an insider's view of Eastern Market, how it works, where the interesting stories are hiding and the plans we have for the future. Along the way, vendors share samples of their tasty goods. See what tours they've cooked up for this season.
