Share on Nextdoor

Known for its bustling Saturdays, Eastern Market will expand to include a Sunday tradition as well this weekend. Starting Sunday, June 1, the weekly event will run every Sunday through September 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. While the market focuses on food and produce on Saturdays, Sundays will be dedicated to non-food items.

According to a press release:

The Sunday Street Market will house nearly 80 vendors in Sheds 2 and 3 featuring home goods, art, jewelry, Michigan-made products, antiques, entertainment, food trucks and more.

Detroit Manufacturing (Michigan-focused clothing and artifacts), City Girls Soap (hand-made soap from goats milk), Firebrand Candles (made-in-Detroit candles), Branded By Detroit (unique wood pieces from reclaimed wood in the city of Detroit), Goodwill Industries (Vintage clothing), Rebel Nell (jewelry made from graffiti) and Don Calloway (Artist) are just a few of the vendors that will be present.

Each Sunday will feature rotating entertainment. The inaugural Sunday Street Market, on June 1st, will feature an exhibition by Nicole Macdonald, an artist and filmmaker, entitled “Factory Windows.” The exhibit will feature historic Detroit figures including Mother Waddles, Yusef Shakur, Father Clement Kern, John Conyers, Erma Henderson, Rosa Parks and Chief Pontiac.

June will also bring in the start of the Tuesday Market, a smaller version of the Saturday Market, starting on June 17 and a return of Third Thursdays, a family-friendly night to experience the Market starting on June 19.
