To market, to market

We finally made it to Eastern Market - Detroit's historic farmers market.

Although I grew up in the Detroit metro area and have been living here again for more than a year now, I'd never been to Eastern Market and - WOW - I've really been missing out.

Eastern Market is 170 years old. It's the oldest and largest market of its kind in America! And it's surrounded by unique shops and restaurants of the sort you wouldn't expect to find flourishing in that part of Detroit.

It's huge, fun, and overflowing with fabulous produce, flowers, baked goods, etc... Plus an interesting blend of people to watch. I can't believe it took me SO long to finally go there. And when I go next time I'll be sure to take more photos!
