    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)
