Wholesale Market

Relative to our other markets, our wholesale market is easy to miss but it is arguably one of our most valuable assets towards supporting our local food businesses. Our wholesale vendors offer whatever you need for your restaurant, store, stand, or event. This market is open to businesses and consumers alike looking to buy in bulk.

Every Monday - Friday, April - November
Flowers (April - June)
Produce (June - November)
Midnight – 6am

GROW Eastern Market

GROW Eastern Market (GEM) is Detroit’s locavore wholesale connection. The mission of GEM is to increase access to local produce by brokering farm-to-fork relationships with institutional buyers (chefs, restaurants, schools, grocery stores and other wholesale markets) to create and expand new market channels for Michigan’s small and emerging growers. We like to think of GEM as: DIRT. DOCK. DOOR. We start with locally grown and harvested fresh foods from Michigan farms, they are brought to our loading docks, and finally to your chef’s door… delicious!

For more information, visit GEM’s website.
