Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of places in Detroit where you can buy fresh produce and interesting food. Good thing we have Eastern Market! They're open every single Saturday and there are always new stalls to stop at and find a new favorite meal.
You should try out all of the options of food trucks, tiny stands with coolers, or the tried and true staples of Detroit to choose from.
Make sure to check Eastern Market's website and the sites of all of the vendors so you can make sure to be up to date on who's selling what and when.
