Metro Detroit Readies for Rust Belt Market

Just as we saw with the debut of Maker Faire Detroit last year, Detroit’s creative and maker minds are continuing to make DIY news in 2011. Pulling inspiration from the Brooklyn Flea, Chris and Tiffani Best are putting the final touches on metro Detroit’s soon-to-be opened Rust Belt Market, located in Ferndale. Promising a mix of indie crafters, makers, and even food creators, I had the chance to get a sneak preview of the space as it readies for its May 7 debut with some of my Handmade Detroit pals. Take a look at this post from Carey Gustafson summarizing her thoughts on the tour as well as this Ferndale Patch photo gallery.
