Time Out says
A Saturday morning institution in these parts, Eastern Market is a one-stop, six-block shop of foodie heaven. The largest historic market in the country, it covers an enormous 43 acres, selling pretty much every kind of food imaginable—as well as hosting the largest open-air flowerbed market in the U.S. It can get very busy—some 45,000 people come here every Saturday—so if you need a breather, head to the Russell Street Deli (2465 Russell St, 313-567-2900), where a delicious breakfast menu is served all day, including their famous fresh hotcakes with roasted pecans and maple syrup.
Strengthen the Eastern Market district;
Fortify the food sector as a pillar of regional economic growth; and
Improve access to healthy, green, affordable, and fair food choices in Detroit and throughout Southeast Michigan.
