Out and About: Detroit's Eastern Market

marketplace2
Yesterday, I set off to Detroit to explore the famous Eastern Marketplace. Each week, as many as 40,000 people attend the Eastern Market for its diverse local food selection. At the heart of the district are open-air stalls filled with a large selection of fruits, vegetables, honeys, fresh cut flowers, homemade jams, and locally produced speciality foods.  We slowly meandered through the market for over four hours, relishing over the yummy barbeque ribs and corn on the cob cooked by Detroit locals. Although the sights and sounds were mesmerizing, what I enjoyed most about the Eastern Market was its vibrant sense of community. Vendors happily talked with the market shoppers, and market shoppers genuinely cared about supporting local business. We purchased an abundance of produce during the weekend trip, much of which will be eaten during our Fourth of July BBQ.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July! What are your plans?

Michal :

I just always love your photos so much! They always capture where you are as well as just the outfit (which is adorable by the way).

That market sounds like a lot of fun. I love farmers markets so much & they're always the first thing I seek out in new cities. I love hearing the locals talk about their produce and filling my belly with free samples (I think I have tried every cheese available at Borough Market hehe).

Sophie :

Wow I love your bag! I wish I could find one of them on my travels, it would be perfect for my holiday!

BAM! you did it again. another killer outfit. I love all yourlooks since you have been away...that skirt look my breath away. the color.

Glad you and Matty like the new bag. The other one he is working on I think Matt will really like, kind of a smaller, less busy vesion of my europe trip bag.

So excited to have come visit and eventually see your face. I am still at the bar, 3 nights a week, but theres a little bit of uncertainly there (tell you later). We need a good catch up. Promise I'll call you soon, its just been go go go since I go home.
