Largest historic public market in the U.S.–

IMG_5475IMG_5464  IMG_5457IMG_5462BOOM!  Started in 1841 and covering about 43 acres this is the largest historic public market district in the U.S.: Eastern Market in Detroit, Michigan.  On Saturdays about forty-five thousand people make their way here looking for veggies, coffee, meats, sausages, plants, flowers, sandwiches, camaraderie, social time, bloody marys, etc.  It remains a bustling hive of activity even as Detroit struggles to find an evolved identity beyond the burnt-out buildings, abandoned lots, and feeling of desolation.  So, calling all adventure travelers, make your way to Detroit, do some exploring, and contribute to the urban renewal that is happening here right before peoples’ eyes.

I send you lively vibes from Eastern Market in Detroit, Michigan. . .feel them. . .they are the stuff that civilization is built on.
