Since 1887, Detroit's Eastern Market, the largest open-air wholesale/retail market of its kind in the United States, has been home to an amazing community of farmers, merchants, and food lovers. Specialty shops, bakeries, spice companies, meat and poultry markets, restaurants, jazz cafés, old-time saloons, produce firms, gourmet shops, cold-storage warehouses, and much more cover the Eastern Market's three square miles. Its many streets and vendors reflect the varied cultures and ethnicities that have shaped the city of Detroit.
In this new edition of Detroit's Eastern Market, authors Lois Johnson and Margaret Thomas recount the history of the market with additional stories and personal accounts of families who have worked and shopped there for as many as four generations. The authors have updated store hours and added new restaurants to their original listing of the numerous businesses that line the Eastern Market's streets-and there is now a map to guide your Market adventures. Also with thirteen new recipes, Detroit's Eastern Market features more than eighty pages of delightful recipes from market retailers, farmers, chefs, and customers.

A good companion for anyone who shops regularly at Eastern Market, as well as a great introduction to those who have never gone down there.
