Come Hungry, Leave Happy: Touring Detroit's Eastern Market
By Aaron Cruz from Awesome Mitten
Eastern Market, in the heart of Detroit, is a neighborhood with over 125 years of stories involving fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, holiday trees, specialty shops, restaurants and a whole lot more. Recently, I was invited by Feet on the Street Tours to go on a tour around the historic market.
Before the tour, I had a chat with the founder, Linda Yeliin. Yeliin has always had a passion for Detroit and started the company on her own by giving friends and family tours of Eastern Market and the city. In 2007, she founded Feet on the Street Tours because she wanted people to experience what Detroit has to offer, and she wanted to show them how to support and connect with the city.
