Detroit Gem Eastern Market Earns Praise


Rust Wire readers know that Detroit frequently makes headlines for all the wrong reasons – crime, corruption, poverty, the list of negatives is long.

But this story from the Dallas Observer lavishes praise on at least one aspect of The Motor City — its farmers’ market, Eastern Market.

The Observer article is bemoaning the state of farmers’ markets in Dallas.
