Historical Context:
The Eastern Market Historic District is located near downtown Detroit. Originally located in Cadillac Square, Eastern Market was first devoted to hay and wood sales. After World War II, Eastern Market became an important hub for the wholesale food industry, as more food processors and wholesalers moved to the area. At the center of the 43 acres, Eastern Market is a six-block public market.
