We've been doing Eastern Market tours for 13 years and it's still a  fan favorite! 



Delish Detroit will stroll from shed to shed and visit specialty stores to learn about unique products,hear 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, their products, and some tips for improving your health with Michigan foods. We'll also visit an art gallery located in a former brewery or a letterpress shop.


Find seasonal fruits and vegetables, while eating your way through the market!

We are pleased to be donating $1 from the sale of each Eastern Market tour ticket to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan! Every dollar buys 3 meals (6 meals this summer with matching gifts!) for struggling families in our local community.
