I was one of the thousands of people who descended on Eastern Market in Detroit this morning to peruse their goods and it was packed! Eastern Market on a regular spring/summer Saturday is filled with people wandering about, looking at vegetables and flowers.
But today, Flower Day at Eastern Market in Detroit resembled a tightly-packed sardine can of people, vendors, wagons, and push carts making their way through the aisles of plants.
Today marked the 48th annual Flower Day at Eastern Market. An annual event held the third Sunday in May, Flower Day brings in flower growers from Michigan, Canada, Ohio and I’m sure other neighboring states to sell their beautiful flowers, tropical plants, hanging baskets, vegetables, herbs, shrubs, and trees.
In addition to the flower and plant vendors, there were activities for kids, food trucks, music, and the marching band from Martin Luther King Jr school to keep everyone entertained and fed.
Did I find any flowers for my garden? I sure did! Here are the Martha Washington geraniums potted plants that will soon grace my courtyard.
How about you? Have you attended Flower Day at Eastern Market?
