OUR MISSION

Vision

We shepherd Eastern Market’s rich history to nourish a healthier, wealthier, and happier Detroit.

Mission

We manage operations, develop programs, build facilities, provide critical infrastructure, and collaborate with community partners to:

  • Strengthen the Eastern Market District as the most inclusive, resilient, and robust regional food hub in the United States.
  • Fortify the food sector as a pillar of regional economic growth
  • Improve access to healthy, green, affordable, and fair food choices in Detroit and throughout Southeast Michigan

Nourishing Detroit

Since it began in the 1800s, Eastern Market has gradually become a cornerstone, nourishing its residents by providing fresh and nutritious food throughout Southeastern Michigan. In more recent years, Eastern Market Corporation has built an infrastructure around the market to support our unwavering mission to enrich Detroit—nutritionally, culturally and economically. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, our goal is to maintain Eastern Market’s:

  • Authenticity
  • Development Equity
  • Connectivity
  • Density
  • Diversity

Past plans have elevated Eastern Market to one of the nation's most comprehensive regional food hubs and attracted millions in market and infrastructure investments. To learn more about future growth and development plans read the Eastern Market 2025 Strategy Executive Summary.
