The Downtown Detroit Partnership has worked with hundreds of vendors to launch unique and dynamic business and restaurant concepts, which the public has enjoyed for the last twenty years. We strike a balance between bringing back favorite vendors that our visitors look forward to seeing from season to season, and featuring new food and retail concepts that complement the market’s already diverse selections. For new vendors, we look for original concepts, thoughtful branding, merchandising execution, experience as an operator, and give preference to Detroit-based applicants.
There are many benefits to businesses in participating in our Downtown Street Eats and market programs. Vendors can earn revenue by selling in one of the highest per capita spending markets in the country. You can also generate awareness for your business through optional promotional material, giveaways, and a chance to participate in TV and radio appearances. The DDP is also committed to helping your business thrive by promoting the programs to our 100,000 followers and creating events and activities that drive foot traffic to the area.
