This past Saturday morning I went down to Detroit’s historic Eastern Market to do some holiday shopping and to consume some local coffee. While I was there, I also captured some photos of the holiday scene. Who doesn’t love being at an outdoor market during the holiday season?
Eastern Market is a six block long public market that has been open since 1891. People were out in full force on this morning.
Even though it’s the winter season here in the Midwest, you’ll still find lots of fruits and vegetables. On the more festive side you can get some cider.
Eastern Market offers plenty of local coffee choices. I went with a latte from Germack Coffee Roasting Co.
You will find wreathes, baskets and candle arrangements aplenty along with some people spreading the holiday cheer through music.
I would have liked to light all those candles up. That would have been a pretty scene. 🙂
To a lot of people the holidays mean it is poinsettia time.
I am always on the lookout for a good red one.
Real holiday trees every where you look.
Pine, pine, pine. You gotta love the smell of pine.
There are lots of pine options in regards to decorations.
Who knows what kinds of holiday items you’ll come across as you walk around outside. Cute reindeer.
There was a festive atmosphere inside the stores around the market as well, like at DeVries & Co. which has lots of Detroit and Michigan based products.
Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus stopped by!
Love seeing ice sculpting up close. Hope it gets colder in the Midwest so sculptors can showcase their work for longer periods of time.
What markets do you plan to checkout or have in your travels during the holiday season?
