Future Improvements Scheduled for Eastern Market

Detroit's Eastern Market will receive several renovations and improvements over the next decade.   Recently, Dan Carmody, president of Eastern Market, outlined the proposed plan called Eastern Market 360, which includes improvements to Shed Number Three (already underway), with an entirely new structure to be known as Shed Number Four.   Shed Number Four will be a two-story, 20,000-square-foot market hall situated north of Shed Three. It will provide space for up to 14 food processing vendors, with classrooms and teaching kitchens on its upper level.

Also proposed in the Eastern Market 360 plan are renovations to Shed Number Five for showcasing horticulture; the widening of Shed Number Six; improvements on Shed Number Seven, including a new docking facility with refrigeration; and improvements to the existing parking structure with installation of solar panels on its roof.
