Eastern Market In Full Bloom For Flower Day On Sunday, May 18
DETROIT (WWJ) - Flowers of all shapes and sizes are taking center stage this Sunday as the 48th annual Flower Day gets underway at Detroit’s Eastern Market.
Spokeswoman La’Leatha Spillers said the fun on Russel Street starts bright and early at 7 a.m.
“It is an absolute potpourri of shrubbery, perennials, annuals, tropical plants, if you’re looking for something like that. I mean, just imagine a sea of beautiful colors, pinks, yellows, greens, purples. It’s just absolutely beautiful,” she said.
Spillers said the annual event draws thousands of visitors, so if you want the best flower selection, plan to arrive early.
“Get here as early as you can. Parking is first come, first served, that’s just the nature of the market,” she said. “Get here early if you want the best pickings, come a little later if you want the best deals.”
Spillers also suggests bringing a wagon or pull-cart to carry flats of flowers.
“If you don’t have one, you can also rent one while you’re here. And then to also help with some of the larger purchases, we do have free pickup and drop off services throughout two locations at the market,” she said.
Flower Day runs until 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.DetroitEasternMarket.com.
