This was my first time ever visiting Eastern Market during Flower Day weekend. My mom and my daughter, Chloe who is 9, headed down to the city around 11 am. When we arrived it was total chaos to find a parking spot but we eventually found one over by the Dequindre Cut (after driving around for 25 minutes lol). I am so glad we didn't just give up and go home since it took so long to find a spot. I was determined to visit Eastern Market Flower Day this year since Eastern Market is now one of my favorite places to visit in the warmer months in Michigan. I get super duper excited whenever I know that I will be heading over there. I also absolutely LOVE the DeVries & Company 1887 shop that is in the heart of it all. It is chock full of unique food & drink items, as well as gifts. I have a ton of fun looking around there and always make sure I take home something special. For this trip, it was black SQUID INK PASTA!
If you are local to the Detroit area, chances are you have been to Eastern Market at least once in your life. If you are a foodie like me then chances are you have visited several times. Eastern Market is a bustling area of visitors looking for the best deals on fresh produce, other food items, and flowers.Â Each and every time you visit Eastern Market it is a different experience because there are different vendors.
Through Groupon, we have also discovered a miraculous place nestled down there in all of the action, DeVries & Company 1887. We regularly purchase Groupons to get some good bargains there and we went equipped with one yesterday to stock up on some unique foods.
I have been trying to lose my halo halo virginity for well over a year now. A freaking year! I discovered this crazy cool concoction on Instagram one day and ever since I have been dreaming of the day that I would get a chance to give this a whirl. My day finally came at Tou & Mai in the Midtown section of Detroit, MI yesterday.
I am so happy to be an Ambassador to this great company Thunderbird Bars. Now is the time for me to spread the word about these amazing bars to my readers. I want to let you in on a little secret... these bars are amazeballs! The best thing about them is that they are all natural and made with REAL FOOD ingredients: fruits, nuts, seeds, and spices. If you are vegan, following a paleo diet, and are looking for a no-added-sugar treat, Thunderbird Bars are for you! You have to trust me on this, these bars are an excellent snack and they are especially great while on-the-go and the hunger hits you. I have been eating these for the past month now and I feel the need to encourage you to give them a whirl!
