I have been waiting for this past weekend for weeks!
Eastern Market hosted an event called “All Things Detroit” where their sheds were packed full of local artists, authors, cooks and local businesses.
Nestled downtown, surrounded by bright murals and the Detroit skyline, Eastern Market is one of the top places to visit in Detroit.
A huge market that carries fresh fruits, vegetables flowers and art – there couldn’t be a better spot to host a local business showcase.
The sheds were packed wall-to-wall with people “oohing” and “aahing”over homecooked baked goods, glassware, clothing and artwork.
I absolutely love food trucks. My favorite tradition in Chicago was waking up on Saturday mornings and taking Lupin for a walk to the park to grab a coffee and donut from the Donut Vault food truck.
There’s something about getting your meal freshly cooked from a truck that makes it taste like nothing else in the world!
But you know what’s the best food to get from a truck?
The look of pure love.
I don’t know what’s in your secret sauce Rollin Stone but it’s Heaven. Pure Heaven.
Then, because eating a whole pizza isn’t enough, I had to check out one more truck.
Just eating from one wouldn’t be fair to you.
Blogger problems, am I right?
I was drawn to Shimmy Shack because I loved how retro the truck was. Flowers and curtains behind the window and 50’s cartoons on the side.
How could you just walk past?
Turns out it’s a completely vegan menu.
Whether you’re vegan or not, I can report that every single thing smelled and looked amazing.
Who doesn’t love a menu full of guac, hummus and spices?
Having eaten a whole pizza, I just grabbed some half/half fries. Half regular, half sweet potato with the most amazing (secret) seasoning.
Salty, spicy and utterly groan worthy.
I have never had better fries in my entire life. Big statement, I know, but I stand by it.
All Things Detroit was even better than I could have hoped. If you’re in Detroit for it next year, you must go!
I love events where you get to see how many unbelievably creative and talented people live around you. It really makes you appreciate your city in a new light.
