Bonnie and Ed Penet, and Leslie and Markel Leland, owners of MIX, a retail store in Downtown Ypsilanti, have created a different kind of shopping experience across Michigan Avenue from their location. The MIX Marketplace serves the community by offering a selection of artisan goods, locally produced food and vintage merchandise that is off the beaten path from typical boutiques and retail stores. The Marketplace has a farmer’s market appeal with different vendors and wares each week. Some anchor stores are tentatively in the works. Also, the roasters from The Ugly Mug Cafe run a coffee bar every Saturday for visitors to enjoy along with a chance to catch a local musician livening up the atmosphere. For more information on how to sell your goods at the MIX Marketplace visit the website. Tuesdays, 3-8pm & Saturdays, 11am-4pm. MIX Marketplace, 200 W. Michigan Ave., Ypsilanti. www.mix-marketplace.com
