saturday in downtown

We finally made it to the Eastern Market in downtown Detroit this past weekend. It was a bit overwhelming to choose from so many booths, since it spans nearly 6 blocks, but overall it was fun to explore for the first time. Below are a few photos we took...




We left with our hands full of cucumbers for making pickles, brightly colored peppers, & big bunches of irises, among other things. Then afterward, I convinced Q to stop at the Milano Bakery down the street, where we shared a sandwich & cupcake that was so hard to actually share.



And finally, we did a few other things while downtown, like visit the art museum & walk to the Paris crepes cafe (thanks, Krystle for the recommendation) for our second dessert of the afternoon. We ultimately decided that all of the walking we did that day entitles us to at least another week of limitless desserts. I'm kidding! (not really).

Oh wow. This sounds (and looks) like a fantastic day. The food is unbelievable. I don't blame you for almost not wanting to share that cupcake. Long live desserts!! (all week long!)

This looks fun. Detroit - who knew?! I guess I am one of the many that hear so much negativity about Detroit on the news that I forget things like this happen there!

Love the pictures. We tried to find Eastern Market YEARS ago when we lived in Eastpointe, and we drove around for a long, long time before just giving up. :(
I'm glad you found it and had such a wonderful day.
