Detroit’s Eastern Market To Expand Variety, Will Offer Homemade Goods

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) — The Eastern Market is hoping to create the same energy and vibe that its Saturday market has — on Sundays!

Detroit’s Eastern Market is launching a street market for non-food items. The Sunday Market will house nearly 80 vendors in Sheds 2 and 3 featuring home goods, art, jewelry, Michigan-made products, antiques and food trucks.

Director of Marketing and Communication for Eastern Market, Laleatha Spillers, said that when many people think of Eastern Market, they think of the traditional offerings such as produce and fresh flowers, but starting Sunday, non-food items will be featured.

“Antiques, artwork, vintage clothing, handmade soap, organic body products and things of that nature,” Spillers explained will be added to the market during Sundays over the summer.

Spillers said that each Sunday will also feature rotating entertainment.

“We will have an art exhibit by Nicole MacDonald, who features factory window pieces, featuring key Detroit figures,” Spillers said. “On Father’s Day, there will be a classic car show and on the last Saturday of the month the Detroit Derby Girls will be there.”

The market will launch Sunday and run every week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until September 28th.
