Model D TV Heads to Eastern Market -- and So Can You with Our Walking Tour

Springtime is upon us, so Model D pays a visit to Eastern Market this week.

Eastern Market is steadily undergoing a major facelift, and Model D TV producer/director talks with Dan Carmody, the chief of the nonprofit Eastern Market Corp.

The group's plan aims to capitalize on what's happening, pardon the pun, organically in the neighborhood — the synergistic forces that have made it a magnet for creative businesses and cool kids all weeklong -- not just the busy market Saturday mornings.

Watch the video by Tom Hendrickson below, and join Model D and Inside Detroit on a tour of the market this Sunday (May 18).

The cost is $5 for the tour, which will last from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. May 18. That's also Flower Day at the market. The tour will start at Rocky Peanut Co. at 2849 Russell St. Sign up here:
