Flower Day at Eastern Market, photo by Eastern Market Corporation
Gardeners who would like to visit Detroit, please allow me to suggest one of the coolest places to go next weekend: Eastern Market’s annual Flower Day on Sunday, May 22 2017:
Flower Day takes place every year on the Sunday after Mother’s Day and has been a time-honored tradition of Eastern Market since 1967. Growers offer a wide variety of flowers at a great value so we recommend you come early for the best selection!
This special day is made possible through our partnership with the Metropolitan Detroit Flower Growers Association. MDFGA members arrive every year from Michigan, Ontario, and neighboring states. They share 15 acres of the heartiest varieties of flowers for this region and they’re ready to share the best strategies of how to help their flora thrive.
We also offer free convenient parcel pickups so you can explore the market throughout the day without being attached to your flats of flowers.
