Eastern Market Flowers – Big Blooming! Geraniums are one of my old-fashioned gardening favorites. They fill the surrounding view with a rainbow of bright invigorating color. Standing tall or short in the rear or the front border of the garden. Then, later in the summer, they are in full bloom, they dominate any garden. Large hanging basket or in tall clay pots make great Detroit Mother’s Day Gifts!
So why plant geraniums in your garden? Beauty, low maintenance, once established, they need little water. Their bright, large colorful blooms capture the attention of passers-by. With their 1 to 4 feet tall display–often planted in raised large clay pots–makes geraniums the perfect choice for easy on the eye front and backyard scenery.

This legendary ghost of Eastern Market roams about the southern end of the property near Riopelle St. The restless, ghostly female spirit first appeared at the turn of the century during the late 1800s right after the excavation of unmarked graves where Shed 1 once stood–yes, Shed 1 the current parking lot, was once a cemetery. The spirit haunts the market and is occasionally seen standing in a tearful mourn extending her arms toward a full blue moon. Latest witnesses claimed while walking pass the market one night, they described a sudden strange compulsion to look in an easterly direction, in doing so, some reported seeing a ghostly phantom figure intently looking skyward–arms extended, weeping.

Artist Sentiments & Motivation–Wall Art
This artwork painting depicts SHED 2 of the historic Eastern Market; built in 1898 making it near 120 years old! SHED 2 is the only last remaining SHED left standing from that era. Other sheds of similar old victorian style architecture have been long demolished. SHED 2 was the original focus point of the market; it now serves as a historic marker that the Detroit Eastern Market began at this location; SHED 2 is the true “center of it all.”
