Eastern Market 

Of course there is the regular Saturday Farmer’s Market, but Sunday is where it is at this weekend. There are three things happening on Sunday, so I’ve kind of cheated by clumping them together.

You have the weekly Sunday Street Market that features numerous vendors. Be sure to check out our friends at Motor City Creations.

Motors at the Market will be bringing out vintage, classic and modern cars to the parking lot next to Shed 5.

Shed 5 Flea will also be happening this Sunday. You never know what you might find at this flea market. Last month I might have ran into Nicole Curtis.
