    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)

    Eastern Market Flowers – Geraniums

    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!

    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.”

    Eastern Market (EM) is one of the most exciting places to shop for gardening plants & flowers. Eastern Market Flower Buyers Guide (EMFBG) will give shoppers the opportunity to… 2”X” the flowers they get for their buck.

    EMFBG TIP 15 – Over Production
    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 and are motivated to sell. 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 buying power.” —Ike Austin

    The Top Blooms Looks Good, but…

    3 Red Flag symptoms means plants could die in your garden

    One occasion I have encounter all three scenarios over the years.  I have bought good-looking plants at the market and other nursery retailers only to discover the plants are suffering from “plant stress” caused by various growing and handling conditions, despite my best efforts, the plants die in the garden.

    These hidden plant related issues go unnoticed durning the excitement of shopping, but you can avoid them if you know what to look for.

    Are You Buying & Spreading Fungus, Insects to Your Garden?

    The quality of plants can vary widely between growers and retailers. It’s important for the health of your garden to inspect your plants before spreading fungus, insects or disease to devastate your garden .

    Can You Spot Bad Plants at Eastern Market?

    Can You Spot Bad Plants at Eastern Market during Flower Day?

    DID YOU KNOW  – 3 Signs plants will die in your garden.

    Let’s Take a Closer Look – Before You Buy

    •  Spot check under blooms for small white aphids – a poor greenhouse insecticide issue passes to customer.
    • Check for dark stems at base of plant – fungus over moister, watering issues can cause gardening issues.
    • Brush hand over top of blooms, if blooms pop off, plants are suffering from light deprivation; plants been on truck to long. Growers sometimes leave plants on trucks and return to the market with the same load several times vs unloading at greenhouses.

    Plant Stress

    Some growers leave plants on trucks for extended periods of time. This causes sun deprivation, it is evident by darkness at the base stem of the plants. Although they may have pretty top blooms, these plants might experience fungus problems and your summer garden will visually suffer.

    Summary
    The quality of plants can vary widely between growers and retailers. It’s important for the health of your garden to inspect your plants before spreading fungus, insects or disease to devastate your garden .
