It’s true, this past winter was one of the worst in history, and it took us more than 200 days to feel the joy of a 70-degree day. But fear not, Michiganders, spring has arrived, and here to roll out the old welcome wagon is Flower Day at Eastern Market.

Thanks to the Metro Detroit Flower Growers Association hundreds of growers throughout the region, thousands gather to snag the highest quality annuals, perennials, trees, flats, and hanging plants to beautify their personal spaces. Don’t have a green thumb? No sweat. This is the perfect event to grow your garden knowledge. And we weren’t joking about the welcome wagon, as the event is B.Y.O.W. Trust us, you’ll need one.



Flower Day runs from 7 a.m.-5 p.m.; 2934 Russell St., Detroit; 313-833-9300; easternmarket.org; Event is free and open to the public.

Peep some footage of last year's event and prep for your haul this weekend.
