Flower Day – May 21, 2017!

RSVP on Facebook for full updates!

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.

Wondering about hours, maps, parking, pets, or something else regarding your visit? Visit our things to know page for all the answers before heading out!

The Sunday after Mother’s Day
7am – 5pm
2934 Russell Street
