Lois Johnson is an obsessive cook, always planning a menu, and Eastern Market has been her grocery store for forty years. After experiencing the pleasures of open-air shopping all over France and utilizing the wonderful and oldest market in England at Norwich, where else in Detroit could she go but Eastern Market?
Margaret Thomas moved to Detroit from Florida in 1994 and quickly fell in love with Eastern Market. Although not an obsessive cook, she swoons at the sights and smells of a fine meal. Living in the market area, she shops there several days a week, calling a greeting to everyone in the market, most by name, often stopping to chat about their families. A city person through and through, she thrives on the color and ambiance the market exudes.
