Come Experience the winter delights of Eastern Market in February and March! Warm your heart and your tummy as we enjoy the festive atmosphere of the Market during the winter months.
Delish Detroit (the culinary tour side of our business) will stroll from shed to shed and visit specialty stores to learn about unique products, fun facts and history of the area, while going behind the scenes and sampling various foods. Enjoy locally produced pizza, popcorn, pickles and pastries; specialty sausages, cheeses and vinegars; authentic spinach pies and spreads. We'll get to know local growers and vendors while we eat our way through the Market with seasonal nibbles and treats, including hot beverages and soups to keep us warm. We'll also visit an art collective or a letterpress shop. Bundle up for the weather but wear layers; we will be inside several shops and in the heated market sheds on our tour, as well as walking outdoors part of the time.

Experience our Rum-Running Detroit Prohibition Tour! Hop on board and enjoy a fun-filled, rollicking ride through the streets of Detroit. Explore the old stomping grounds of the Purple Gang and their rivals. Hear stories and fun facts spiked with a few grizzly details...and learn about Al Capone's mark on Detroit. See famous landmarks and sites including the Old Warehouse District, Eastern Market, the old Germantown neighborhood, and the International Riverfront, where Liquid Gold flowed in from Windsor, Canada. Smuggle some booze of your own (yes you can bring your own drink on the bus, just make sure to use a covered, non-glass container, like a snazzy flask) as we explore a former speakeasy or two and a historic brewery. Revel in the rich history of Jazz in Detroit and experience great live music at Bert's Jazz Club to top off a fabulous night!
For a uniquely fun evening out in the D, gather up a group of friends, family, club members, convention buddies or co-workers...AND ring us up to say: "Moe told me I BETTER call ya." Your guide will be decked out, so dress up in snazzy duds from the Prohibition era. Costumes are optional but encouraged and prizes will be awarded!

We at Feet on the Street along with Stephanie Appel of Core Learning, Inc. are pleased to offer tours for Social Workers. These workshops are bus tour/continuing education programs where participants will step out of a "classroom" and onto a bus to visit sites and hear from presenters who will address issues facing Detroit and the Metropolitan Region. Through these experiential learning opportunities, participants will learn more about critical and current issues, such as: food issues, diversity, ethnic and cultural traditions, land use, transportation, area history, local programs and services, blight removal and rehab efforts. Please note, these programs are open to anyone interested in the topic.
