The Eastern Market neighborhood in Detroit’s northeast is famous for its food and local craftsmanship. It houses many unique venues and functions as a meeting place for vendors, who come to the area every weekend to offer a diverse selection of goods. It’s no wonder that Eastern Market has become such a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
If you haven’t yet explored Eastern Market in person, you can take part in a guided walking tour with Detroit Experience Factory this February. The nonprofit organization will be showing attendees around Eastern Market on Saturday, February 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. After meeting at Germack Coffee Roasting Co., the tour will visit a number of small businesses and other cool spots. Your guide will share plenty of facts about the city’s history and architecture, as well as its contemporary art and cultural movements.
