What is The Ponyride Market?

The Ponyride Market is so many things. It functions as a business incubator for Southeast Michigan’s maker community, as well as being a driver of economic development and creative entrepreneurship for Detroit's neighborhoods. It's a vibrant city event, celebrating the diversity and creativity Detroit has to offer. We strongly believe that when you bring together people with strong passions and rooted beliefs in one place, magic will happen. And it has for this dreamy community called Ponyride.
