Continued: Detroit's Eastern Market

Access to all of this garden goodness has grown easier in recent years: Locals can now hike and bike from downtown to Eastern Market via Dequindre Cut Greenway, a nature trail reclaimed from an abandoned railway line. Restaurants encircling Eastern Market proudly feature "Grown in Detroit" produce, including collards for the black-eyed pea and collard soup at Russell St. Deli (pictured). And boxes of locally sourced produce are distributed citywide through Detroit's nonprofit Fresh Food Share Program. —Alison Bing
