The Rust Belt Market

Turning the concept of a big-box store on its head, The Rust Belt Market exists in what was once a large chain retailer space. Now, instead of a cookie-cutter retailer, this space houses over 50 independent retailers that offer an eclectic mixture of handmade and collected goods from local artists. Explore the Rust Belt Market and get inspired by what HOUR Detroit magazine voted the “Best Place to Buy Original Art and Local Craft.” You never know what you may find!
