The Detroit Foodie Fair is returning to Eastern Market, and a new event called Detroit Vegan will be making its debut on the same day. Guests can experience different vegan products, gourmet bites, food trucks, and more. Fair goers will even get to vote on their favorite foodie finds at these events.
