Eastern Market: A celebration of community, local farming and good food

“Everybody talks about Detroit as a food desert,” says Dan Carmody, president of Eastern Market Corporation (EMC), “but it’s really a place desert, a city without enough places for people to gather.” Carmody continues: “When people think about Eastern Market, they tend to think of food. To me, the market is 50 percent food and 50 percent people from all walks of life getting together. Eastern Market is a celebration of the neighborhood.”
