There's certainly more to flower day at Eastern Market than meets the eye. Flower Day has something for just about everyone to enjoy. Check it out!
While Eastern Market looks like the country's largest flower garden; all sheds and open areas are covered with every possible annual, perennial, herb, shrub and tree at prices well below what nurseries charge. Six-foot dahlias, fragrant jasmine, pastel Gerbera daisies, dozens of rose varieties, sweet lilac bushes, smoke trees, succulents—stop us or we'll go on like Bubba talking about shrimp.
Metropolitan Detroit Flower Growers Association (MDFGA) members arrive every year from Michigan, Ontario and neighboring states to share 15 acres of the heartiest varieties for this region, and they're ready to answer questions about how to help them thrive.
So grab your wagon, decorate it if you're so inclined and come early for the best selection. The growers are so enthusiastic and caffeinated, they'll let you start buying before 7 a.m. (Some customers come as early as 4 a.m.). If you come later in the day, there may be fewer choices, but growers may be in the mood to deal. Get answers to your questions about parking, pets, and more before heading out.
Take some time to meander around the twists and turns of the market and explore. You will see a lot of differences this year from last year in the market after Murals in the Market last fall where we had 50 muralists simultaneously painting in and around the market - you'll see large scale murals from some of the most talented artists in Detroit and the world.
Walk down to The Detroit Merchantile and have a coffee from Drifter (the cutest coffee trailer and pop up living room) and some Bon Bon Bons!! Get your coffee and chocolate fix before power shopping or after you've shopped. At the Merchantile, you will find all sorts of Detroit gear and treats!
If you are in the mood for some BBQ and Music, head by BERTS and listen to Sweet Willie Tea! One man band with soul and humor. We love to sit in the sun, drink a beer, watch the people pass by, and listen to some tunes. We love the blues!
Right around the corner on Division, you can pick up your DETROIT HUSTLES HARDER swag, vintage gear from BLUE VELVET, goodies from SIGNAL RETURN, and grab some gorgeous bouquets and curated flowers by POT & BOX.
If you're ready to DANCE the day away and sweat, then everything you need is below - ENJOY:
