Flower Day Eastern Market
On another occasion one rainy and chilly morning as I walked the Michigan Detroit Eastern Market, I spotted bundles of multi-colored blooms sitting in a thicket of color. The morning air was filled and smelled of floral perfumes. Yes, this type of colors crammed in one spot is attractive as its density of color catches the eye toward blooms of pure beauty. However, on this occasion, the thicket of color; yellows, pinks, reds, purples, and whites were covered, surrounded by a crowd of onlookers. This big bang of color gave the crowd an almost pinkish hue, a unique contrast with the Market of Full Blooms posing as all eye’s of he crowd lusted at the floral center piece. The onlookers stared as though they had been hypnotized into a state of stoic admiration. As the crowd passed, along the full length of the long walkway, each person had a moment to be mesmerized.

The above photos of full bloom at the Detroit Market Flower Day may be the best sea of color a flower lover can experience, but I did manage to capture many scenarios just before it all started to dissipate in hours by the hoards of full bloom, flower loving hoards of buyers.
The sun had not yet fully rose and softly disturbed this morning beams on the full bloom scenery as the flowers location was spot lighted by the sun; flowers below, blooming twenty feet high, and the darling morning market was quite. But this rainy cool morning was quickly about to change as the sun slowly rose, it brought in the anxious hoards who immediately encroached on the Northern Michigan Detroit Eastern Market’s location, the sun rays also quickly melted any light frost off the nearby branches on some shrubbery. I had to quickly gird up and try to press into the crowd to get this particular photo shot during Flower Day Eastern Market.

SHED 2 is the only last remaining Farmer’s Market SHED left standing from that era. Other sheds of similar old Victorian architecture have been long demolished. SHEDS 1 & 2 was the original construction site of the market; it serves to remind all visitors that the Detroit Eastern Market began at this southern location; SHED 2 is the true “center of it all.”
In the early days, structures were erected to protect farmers from the weather elements called “SHEDS.” Many visitors today are not aware of the rich history of what this last iconic Eastern Market Detroit structure represents.
