Great things are happening at the Rust Belt Market!  The innovative owner, Chris Best is heavily entrenched in the local community and a staunch supporter of gay rights.  For those who don’t know what the Rust Belt Market is, then it’s time you paid it a visit.  Think of an artisan flea market meets hipster convention.  They are open Thursdays-Sunday and their tenants sell everything from scarves, soaps, organic honey, amazing artwork, and much more.  Some notable tenants of the Rustbelt Market are the creative geniuses at Armageddon Beach Party, and the culinary kings at Bishop Dow’s.  They have a competition that requires applicants to submit a video on why they should be picked.  More information is located on their website.
