2020 Preservation Detroit Saturday Eastern Market Tour

May 2 at 10:00 am - September 26 at 12:30 pm

Explore the vibrant Eastern Market with us!

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of America’s oldest and largest outdoor farmers market as you walk among reminders of its 125 year history.  From woodlands to cemeteries, prisons to railroads, breweries to rum runners, and music to murals, discover what makes Eastern Market’s past so fascinating, learn about plans for the future, and after the tour, spend time in the present to shop and enjoy.  

Tours depart from the Eastern Market Visitors Center.
