Eastern Market Area

Being Kept Very Busy


A relative of Sal and Ann Ciaramitaro, Dominic Ciaramitaro, a member

of the U.S. Marines was killed recently  in Afghanistan.   Since news of this

tragedy spread, Sal and Ann have been swamped with phone calls from

people expressing their condolences.    Dominic used to come to the Eastern

Market on Saturdays and help Sal and Ann at Ciaramitaro Bros. Produce Co.,

and was a hard worker and popular youngster in the area.  Eastern Market

Corporation extends our sympathies to the Ciaramitaro family.


Congratulations Alyson!  The Michigan Apple Committee hosted its annual

Apple Festival at Eastern Market recently.   Alyson Wendzel of Watervliet was

crowned the 2011 Michigan Apple Queen...just four years after her older sister

earned the same title.


More Activity at the Market.  There have been several new activities and

contests recently at Eastern Market.  They include:   Apple Pie Baking Contest,

Hula Hoop Contest, Cow Milking Contest, Chainsaw Carver Contest, Pumpkin

Carving Demos, Karate Demonstrations,  and A Scavenger Hunt.


Michigan Apple Gala and Auction.   Festivities at Eastern Market's Apple

Gala and Auction featured a variety of events.   They included a strolling supper

featuring local restaurants with multitudes of samplings;  a Live Auction which

featured life size artificially designed apples rendered by local artists. 


The Gala also held a cooking face-off highlighting two local chefs in a

battle to become the "Next Urban Chef."   Various entertainment was

scattered  throughout the evening, and an awards ceremony was held to

proclaim the winners.


Renovation of Shed No. 5 will begin on Jan. 12.   It will cost around $6 million.


Eastern Market Tuesdays was so popular this year that in 2012 it will be

extended, according to Dan Carmody.
