    In this post you’ll learn 15 proven ways to pay less and get more bedding plants this year Flower Day Eastern Market 2018

    Flower Day Detroit Eastern Market Buyers Guide Spend less, get more

    It gets better:

    All of these Flower Day Eastern Market buying strategies worked on me–yes customers taught me all I know–I once worked a roadside flower stand. These same methods are timeless and are still applied during every gardening season.

    Of the 17 tips checking cell count is the easiest and most efficient. Because it simply involves observation & math. We are free to use all methods to match with personalities, weather & demand.

    These are good spirited techniques–conducted in the true friendly spirit of trade, others are simple observation and math; but any one can save you money and insure you have a better Eastern Marketing experience.

    Side Bar The Little Green Truck – I have personally watched customers try to bully or insult vendors into a low-ball price; that’s not the technique used here. For instance, one early morning at the Eastern Market Flower Day I stood gazing down at the most beautiful flat of petunias anyone has even seen–grown by a very small grower, both him and his wife looked under five feet in height, and they had a very small dark green truck. A customer question why these flats cost $1.00 more than the others on the market–the seller got irritated and told the person to go and “find it…like this!” As he proudly stated with his hands on both sides, chest stuck out as he popped up on his toes–chuckling. I didn’t waste any time and purchased several flats for his asking price–and gave them a tip–these gorgeous flats were worth more than their $7 asking price. I never take advantage of an individual and always tipped when appropriate. I never again found flats of petunias that looked as good those of the little farmer in the little green truck. The farmer told me the seed variety was called “Ultra Mix”, I searched but could not find the same; there are lots seed brands out there, but… as the little farmer said… “none like this!”

    Jump ahead straight to the complete eBook here…Eastern Market Flower Day best flowers at the best price guide.

    Now if you do this right, and do it all in a fun, good spirited nature”, the market vendors will always be glad to see you coming year after year.

    History of Sheds – Eastern Market Historic

    When Were Sheds Built? -Historical time-line Video


    Watch short Eastern Market timeline video (1min).

     Shed 5 April Saturday Morning.

    Market activity or visitor traffic is heavy, inventory is light in mid-April. Only a few vendors with minimum garden plant inventory on display. All other sheds are similar in products on display and visitor traffic. Shed 6 was empty; for the exception of only one nursery vendor.

    Why are Eastern Market Structures Called Sheds?

    Historically Speaking

    The term “Shed”was used back in the early 1800s when local farmers raised a shed to sell their produce for shelter against the elements; early temporary structures were flimsy. To accommodate the large increasing agricultural commercial industry in Detroit, several sheds were erected over strategic areas throughout the city.

      (The Eastern Market Structures are Called Sheds)

    In the early years there were several such farmer produce sheds or structures scattered throughout the city of Detroit. But, as the farming age was transformed from agriculture to industrialization, the sheds also experienced several transformations during this time as sheds were slowly being replaced and modernized by the changing architecture and expanding urban renewal.

    • Documentations confirm that the original market was located in Cadillac Square, and it was later relocated to it’s present location.
    • Tenative Sheds—including Shed 1 & 2 —were already being contructed as early as 1891.

    The term origin of the term “shed” has since faded from public memory; few city individuals even know the true meaning of the word “shed” except those few who represent an unbroken chain of generations  who make the annual pilgrimage to the good old historic Detroit Eastern Market’s annual events such as Flower Day.

    The current Eastern Market is the lone survivor of originally several designated markets that was located throughout Detroit in the early years(1800s).

    Only 3 Sheds Numbered 2, 3, 5?

    Some visitors to the market notice that there are a total of only three shed designation numbers with large orange numbers on the roof tops. But, the numberings are for only Shed 2, Shed 3, and Shed 5?

    (Shed 1 located at “southern end” of market – Built 1891-demolished 1967; current parking lot)
    (Shed 2 located at “southern end” of market – Built 1898-victorian double arched architecture)
    (Shed 3 located at “southern end” of market – Built 1922)
    (Shed 4 located at “mid-market” of market – Built 1938-more of a connecting cooridor)

    (Shed 5 located at “northern end” of market – Built 1939)
    (Shed 6 located at “northern end” of market – Built 1966)

    EMFDBG sheds5-4-3-2 - Photo by Ike Austin

    (Sheds 2, 3, & 5 are obvious, Sheds 1, 4, & 6 are not)

    But…
    Inquiring visitors want to know...

    Where are Sheds 1, 4, and 6?

    Shed 1?

    Shed 1 was located just south of  the where Shed 2 stands today. Shed 1 was original built in 1898 then, almost 40 years laters it was torn-down in 1967 due to the expanding freeway systems. So officially Shed 1 no longer exists—it is currently the parking lot.

     (Shed 1 no longer exists – “southern end” of market – Built 1841; demolished 1967)

    Shed 4?

    Shed 4 does not resemble any of the large structured sheds and bares no mark or shed name on its frame. Shed 4 is the free stand-alone open air connecting structure that sits between Sheds 3 and 4; it is currently painted a rust orange it is considered a walking path between Shed 3 and Shed 5.

     (Shed 4 is located “mid-market” – Built 1938)

    Shed 6?

    This structure also bares no name or title. It is located at the northern end of the market. It is simply referred to as the section with the tall roof-top or high canopy, “you know, the area upfront with the raised sidewalk.” During Flower Day all sheds are crammed with flower and garden lovers.

    (Shed 6 is located at the “northern end” of the market – Built 1966)

    EMFBG TIP 15 – Over Production

    Opportunity Abound on Flower Day

    These types of vendors are ready to deal, you would be doing both of you a favor.

    If you are walking the market and spot a large display of a single variety of bedding plants, due to various uncontrolled circumstances growers have overstocked merchandise. These growers can be motivated to sell at bargain prices. In trade lingo they say, the grower is “long on Begonias.” Just knowing what to look for can get $12 healthy, beautiful Begonia flats for only $6! “2X the flower buying power.” 

    Excerpt – True Story

    One year as I was making my routine market walk, I spotted a grower with an entire truckload of Red Impatiens; beautiful and in prime condition.  I complimented on the beauty of the plants–remember don’t brow beat, compliment–and asked the price. He said “$12.”  I took out my wallet and asked if he would accept $100 for 20 flats; that’s $5 a flat.  The grower called his farther, and cleared the deal.  I fished out another twenty hidden in my wallet as emergency funds and threw that into the already accepted offer. My final price was $6 a flat and the grower netted appx $4. with the relief he was not going to lose $4, and load & haul the flowers back to the farm, and unload. This is a “win win.”

    I have also seen new grower vendors at the market hoping to get near full price for their flats, who would pass up these low priced deals even from retailers trying to buy the whole truck and get stuck with lots of inventory at the end of the day.

    You just have to have the right eye to know what to look for, and a sincere desire to benefit all.  That’s why I gave up the $20 dollar bill.  I don’t want to hurt the grower, and I like being in the right place at the right time. These deals and start appearing as early as Flower Day.
