Stall Rental Information
Thank you for your interest in selling at Detroit Eastern Market. Since 1891 we have been home to Detroit's most lively, robust, and diverse public market, drawing up to 40,000 visitors per week! We are excited that you have taken the time to reach out to us.
Please Note: The first round of applications are due March 9, 2015. Please submit all materials by that date to ensure consideration for peak season market acceptance. We are always accepting applications from farmers & growers. If you are a Michigan or regional farmer, we encourage you to submit an application at any time.
Before you proceed, here are a few steps to becoming a vendor at Eastern Market:
1. READ THE VENDOR HANDBOOK: This handbook will tell you everything you need to know about selling at Eastern Market and help you determine if we are the right fit for you. Please take special note of the multiple market days: Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Wholesale.
2. COMPLETE & SUBMIT VENDOR APPLICATION: We encourage you to support your application with supplemental materials such as photographs, copies of promotional materials, or samples (when appropriate).
3. WAIT WITH PATIENCE: There is a very high demand for space at the market. Please be patient as we review your application and determine if your proposed specialty will complement our market mix.
4. MEET WITH US: If we are interested in your product (i.e., if it is a product we are missing or think would add diversity to our market mix) we will set up a meeting with you. With our goal of providing farm fresh and wholesome food to all, we are always looking for new Farmers. At this meeting we will go over additional requirements including insurance, licensing, and sampling regulations.
If we do not have space for your proposed specialty we will let you know via mailed letter or email.
We will keep your application on file for 12 months should stalls become available. We encourage all vendors to re-apply each winter to begin selling in our April 1 lease-year.
Again, thank you for your interest, and we look forward to reviewing your application!
