Due to overwhelming demand, a second tour has been added. To many, Detroit’s Eastern Farmers Market is one of the area’s best institutions. However Long before Flower Day became a staple of Detroit’s Eastern Market, the Market was home to Detroit’s ruthless organized crime families. More than 100 years ago, the Adamo brothers led Detroit’s first Italian mafia family. Brothers, Vito and Sam Adamo were based in the Eastern Market until they were both gunned down in cold blood during a mob hit at the Market. To this day, the feds believe Eastern Market remains Mob Central for Detroit’s mafia.
