Eastern Market in downtown Detroit is an historic landmark in the heart of the city. Its a celebration of the freshest meats, fruits, vegetables and specialty food items. Many which are made right here in Detroit!
I had the opportunity to sit and talk to Myles Hamby from Red Truck Fresh Produce from Eastern Market about their mission. Red Truck not only provides the freshest produce, but they’re are giving back to our Veterans by offering them a chance to work and learn a new trade. Take a listen!
What an exciting new business! Be sure to attend one of Red Trucks cooking demonstrations with Chef Phil Jones every Sat. from 10a-4p. Also Red Truck has teamed up with workforce development partners, Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit, to provide jobs to Veterans. Visit their website http://www.redtruckfreshproduce.com for more information on these job opportunities for our Veterans and all the exciting things Red Truck has to offer!
With spring weather improving now is the perfect time to take a visit to the historic Eastern Market and be sure to visit Red Truck Fresh Produce at Gratiot Central Market located at 1429 Gratiot Ave in Detroit.
