The Dequindre Cut is now fully connected with the completion of the Detroit Link. Built on the site of the old Grand Trunk Railroad line, the 1.35-mile greenway is perfect for walking, biking, exercising, discovering artwork and enjoying our beautiful city. It connects all the way from the Riverfront to Eastern Market to Hamtramck! The Link Detroit project is made possible through a partnership between the City of Detroit, Eastern Market Partnership, Midtown Inc., and our wonderful foundation and State of Michigan partners.

Detroit Community Markets

Detroit Community Markets are neighborhood locations where you can buy fresh, affordable, and locally produced food. This network is made up of farmers' markets, farm stands, mobile trucks, and food box programs. These markets seek to improve neighborhoods, support local growers, and create public spaces where residents can come together.

Visit the Detroit Community Markets website for a full list of locations, methods of payment including Bridge Cards and Double Up Food Bucks, and much more!

Farm Stands

As important as it is to fill our market with the freshest fruits and vegetables, it may be even more important to bring them to communities with little access to wholesome foods. Since 2009, we have established pop-up mobile markets in many Detroit-area locations to create a healthier Southeastern Michigan.

Eastern Market Farm Stand proudly accepts cash, credit/debit, SNAP Bridge Cards, Double Up Food Bucks, WIC Project FRESH, and Senior Market Fresh.

Tasting Stations

We’ve partnered with several Detroit-based independent grocery stores to promote increased produce consumption and healthy lifestyles. Most “Tasting Stations” are set up inside grocery stores near the produce department to promote healthy eating through the distribution of samples and recipe cards. We also help connect grocery store stores with our Wholesale Market.
