Welcome to GROW Eastern Market!
DIRT. DOCK. DOOR.Locally grown and harvested fresh foods from Michigan farms, delivered to our loading docks...and then to your chef's door. GROW Eastern Market (GEM) is Detroit's Locavore Wholesale Connection.
THE MISSION: Grow Eastern Market mission is to increase access to local produce by brokering farm-to-fork relationships with distributors and institutional buyers (chefs, restaurants, schools, grocery stores and other wholesale markets) to create and expand new market channels for Michigan’s small and emerging growers.
THE VISION: Grow Eastern Market intends to be the missing link to harmonize supply and demand needs within our regional food system. Smaller growers need support and resources to tap into more profitable and stable market channels. Buyers need assurances on food safety and access to local produce through one relationship. Our aggregation, logistical and grower support services seek to streamline inefficiencies across the supply chain so that farmers can run profitable businesses and buyers have a consistent source for Michigan-grown produce and value added foods. We aim to be a vibrant locavore wholesale solution for Detroit and beyond.
