Interesting artist market. Only open 11-7 on weekends. Artists rent booths & display their items in unique ways. Fun music plays in the background. Enjoyed my visit.

Heard about Rust Belt Market from a friend so my sister and I made this our first stop after lunch on the 17th of May. The Market is all indoors and each vendor has their own unique space to display their goods. We took our time walking around and spent about 45 minutes. The walkways were very roomy, but access...

Let us start off by emphasizing that you DO NOT have to be a hipster to enjoy this compact conglomeration of local entrepreneurs. Yes, some of the wares are a little expensive but there is plenty of affordable stuff here. Lots of vintage clothing,( the kind of clothing my daughter is loving), delectable palate ticklers, jewelry, woodcarvings, Speedcult steel designs... More

Pick up a gift for a friend, your mom, your significant other or maybe yourself! Browse all the booths for new quirky items or maybe something vintage. There's art, there's handmade soap and lotions, there's t-shirts, home decor & more! Don't forget to pick up a coffee or some beans from the amazing Henrietta Haus coffee roasters. YUM.

This place is so cool! Lots of neat vendors under one roof on the weekends. I went one Sunday afternoon with my daughter and had such a great time. We ended up with a few great finds for bargain prices. There is art, jewelry, clothing, soaps and creams, food, vintage artifacts and housewares, plants and much more. I cant wait... More

This is such a wonderful place to visit. So many very creative items. There are wonderful people here and they do take the time to tell you about their works of art. It's very difficult not to spend money here. You'll see rows of artistic vendors. Items are available in all price ranges. Friday nights are fantastic and that's when... More

Its a cool place to go on a Saturday or Sunday to find some interesting stuff, Pretty much a Flea market mixet with an Artsy Fartsy crowd. I have been there a few times, there is some cool Artsy stuff and some really bad Crappy stuff, ill let you decide... either way its a fun place to hang out.

The Rust Belt provides a real-world (vs online) venue for local artisans/creatives to display quite an array of wares. I had a blast looking at unique pieces in various mediums, talking to the vendors, and being generally inspired. Enjoy!
