Specialty Markets

Throughout the seasons, there are occasions that call for extra markets. Our specialty markets are the perfect way to spend your holidays and find special items when they reach their peak of the season.

This holiday season (now through December 31), give the Gift of Friendship by joining the Friends of Eastern Market. Surprise your friends and treat yourself while contributing to your favorite nonprofit organization, Eastern Market Corporation. Your donation supports fresh food access, food entrepreneurship, and operations of the market. Friends will enjoy cooking classes, access to events and great gifts.

When you give a gift of $25 or more, you will receive a Friends of Eastern Market gift bag!

Gift bags have extra goodies at $50 and $100+. If you choose to send a gift bag to a loved one, be sure to provide their mailing address on our donation form.  To receive your gift before Christmas Day, you must donate by December 13. Gift bags can also be purchased at the Friends of Eastern Market booth on market days.

Flower Day

Flower Day takes place every year on the Sunday after Mother’s Day and has been a time-honored tradition of Eastern Market since 1967. Growers offer a wide variety of flowers at a great value so we recommend you come early for the best selection!

This special day is made possible through our partnership with the Metropolitan Detroit Flower Growers Association. MDFGA members arrive every year from Michigan, Ontario, and neighboring states. They share 15 acres of the heartiest varieties of flowers for this region and they’re ready to share the best strategies of how to help their flora thrive.

We also offer free convenient parcel pickups so you can explore the market throughout the day without being attached to your flats of flowers.
