Russell Street To Riopelle Street
Between Wilkins and Winder
Anyone who says Detroit is a bleary choice for a vacation has not been to the public Saturday Market at Eastern Market. The place is vibrant, packed and one of the great American markets.
Eastern Market is Detroit's food distribution area - mostly wholesale during the week, but wide-open on Saturdays.
Most of the Saturday Market happens in giant shed's packed with independent vendors - some 250 vendors in merchants in five sheds and storefronts lining Russell and Riopelle Street.
If it's fresh, there is a stand selling it. Every fruit and vegetable in season, fresh flowers, meats, seasonings and plenty to eat as one walk's.
Come early and there is plenty of street parking, Later there are lots and a garage off Riopelle Street.
