Grow Eastern Market is a food hub program of the Eastern Market Partnership. Founded in 2016, we service restaurants, grocery stores, and other businesses and institutions in Southeast Michigan with a fresh selection of local produce. Our goal is to increase access to local produce by creating market channels from Michigan's small growers to Metro-Detroit businesses.
We source our food from over 20 farms in Southeast Michigan. Purchasing from these small farms supports the local food economy, while allowing you to have local Michigan produce on your shelves and menus all year long.
The Eastern Market Partnership is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your support of GEM helps our other programs (farm stands, food access, nutrition education, etc.) Together we can build a "Healthier, Wealthier, and Happier Detroit"
Grow Eastern Market is here to help with local produce procurement any way we can. If you're a school looking to participate in the Ten Cents A Meal program or a business looking to provide local food for employees, we can help. We offer produce box packing, produce buying services, and help starting a local food business. Eastern Market is your source for everything local food.
