May in Detroit means Flower Day at Eastern Market, which was sorely missed after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. (The event flipped to online ordering in 2020 and returned in 2021 as a series of smaller events dubbed “Flower Season”.) Now everyone’s favorite excuse is to head to the Russell Street barns, get some sunshine, and buy. flowers is back on Sunday. Whether you’re working on your backyard garden or looking to brighten up a drab apartment, you’ll find all kinds of hanging baskets, houseplants, and flats on the market. Sure, you can buy flowers and plants at Eastern Market pretty much every weekend, but the flower season is in full force in May. There will also be three Tuesday flower season markets on May 17, 24 and 31. Probably better to check that one out if you don’t feel like fighting the Sunday crowds and dealing with hectic parking.
From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Oosterse Markt; 2934 Russell St., Detroit; eastmarket.org.
