Eastern Market - Lot 5


Eastern Market is located in downtown Detroit, northwest of Comerica Park and Ford Field. Eastern Market is a great location for Detroit Tigers Opening Day tailgating.  Lot 5 parking provides plenty of space to park and setup a small tailgate around your vehicle. Lot 5 offers access to indoor restrooms.

In addition to the great pre-game atmosphere you'll find at Lot 5, all of the proceeds from Detroit Tigers Opening Day tailgate parking go to support Eastern Market's mission of providing greater access to quality food offered by locally owned businesses.
