The Eastern Market offered a chance to sample Michigan on Sunday afternoon.
An event called All Things Detroit took place from noon to 6 p.m., giving attendees the opportunity to try not only Detroit's finest products, but also Michigan's best kept secrets from Traversey City, Muskegon and other state-wide surprises.
About 190 Michigan small businesses showcased products at the events, including fresh cupcakes from Whiskey Business Cupcakes in Pontiac.
"We're giving out samples and people are really surprised, (saying), 'Wow, this is pretty good,'" said Erika Hardman of Whiskey Business Cupcakes. "Samples are what's getting us orders."
The Eastern Market said the goal of this special event was for small businesses to increase brand awareness and pull in new customers.
