The Detroit Design Festival presents Eastern Market After Dark, a tour of the creative side. Eastern Market is often recognized as the food hub of Detroit, bustling with Saturday morning shoppers and specialty grocery stores. After dark a different hustle takes over the neighborhood, a creative movement hidden in lofts, studios and galleries living in the market.
