DETROIT (WXYZ) — For a third consecutive holiday season, the Downtown Detroit Markets are back – and they open up today.

Detroit-area small businesses will be featured in the markets. Each business is Detroit-based, female-owned or minority-owned. Merchandise ranges from fiber artwork to motivating temporary tattoos and locally inspired streetwear.

“This season, we will be working with an eclectic mix of small businesses offering products that truly have something for everyone to enjoy,” said Francesca George, Bedrock’s Director of Experience, in a press release. “The Downtown Detroit Markets have proven themselves to be a successful platform for local entrepreneurs to test out the downtown retail scene - and we know this season will be the best one yet. As downtown Detroit continues to establish itself as a retail and entertainment destination, Bedrock stays committed to developing innovative ways to support local talent while creating unique experiences in the city.”

The Cadillac Lodge will also be returning, where festive drinks and snacks will be served, along with s'mores kits for the outdoor fire pits. The Cadlilac Lodge will have capacity for vendors to pop up and showcase goods, including Eastern Market Brewing Co. and Blake's Hard Cider.
