Every trip to Detroit should include a visit to the Eastern Market. Located in the warehouse district, the market has its own one of a kind atmosphere. Amazing street art covers the walls of warehouses around the main shed. I love to buy a freshly brewed coffee and a pastry from one of the market vendors and simply walk around. There is so much to look at and enjoy : flowers fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade delicacies…If you are at the market around lunch time, try one of the food trucks or restaurants, but be ready to wait a while because all Detroit wants to eat there.
I never leave without checking my favorite store, the Eastern Market Antiques. It is such a fun place where you can just relieve the U.S. history. Vintage clothes, old records, mid-century furniture are just an example of all the cool thing you can find in that shop.
I also really enjoy the Devries & Co 1887. This import house takes you on a tour around the world. You’ll find delicatessen from Europe, special teas from Asia and so much more.
Late birds will find many food trucks and restaurants for a delicious lunch.
