Since 1887, Detroit's Eastern Market, the largest open-air market of its kind in the United States, has been home to an amazing community of farmers, merchants, and food lovers. Varied cultures and ethnicities that have shaped the city of Detroit are highlighted, as are stories and personal accounts of families who have worked and shopped there for as many as four generations. Transportation (e.g., people and goods), print literacy (e.g., numeracy) are themes that also need to be explored.
Vegetables and fruits (e.g., fresh, frozen, canned/processed, dried spices), flowers (e.g. potted, freshcut, dried), baked goods (e.g., cereals, wheat, breads, and pastries) are all present, as are meat and poultry markets, e.g. cold-storage warehouses) art stalls and murals, street musicians and jazz cafes, and restaurants.
